Optical Fiber Assembly makes use of OCT capabilities.

Press Release Summary:




Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) optical fiber assembly capabilities enables building of optical fiber probes with flexible tip lensing designs to meet critical OCT imaging specifications, such as insertion loss, internal back reflection, beam size, and working distance. Fiber manufacturing can incorporate such unique features as select cutoff, specific numerical apertures, graded index fibers, and coreless fibers. Additionally, polishing and fiber tip shaping are available.
