OCT technology is widely used to perform surface and cross section measurements (and imaging) for different materials. Compared to other technologies, such as X-Ray and Ultrasound, OCT techniques guarantee a non-invasive approach and higher resolution.
Furthermore, the use of swept sources with OCT systems, allows faster more accurate measurements compared to other OCT techniques, such as Time Domain (TD) and Spectral Domain (SD) OCT.
Consequently, SS-OCT has been used in a wide range of applications. From biomedical equipment (eye imaging) to industrial inspection processes, SS OCT succeeds in providing fast measurements and high resolution images.
This presentation will show the results achieved in several metrology related applications using the Santec (Komaki, Japan) OCT systems and sources.
