Expedition into the Eye >> Learn how OCT is transforming our understanding of the eye, from tear film to photoreceptors. The eye is a delicate yet intricate structure, making it challenging territory to explore. With the emergence of optical coherence tomography (OCT) over the past 25 years, researchers and […]
OCT as Optical Biopsy in Dermatology Skin is the largest organ of the body, possessing an amazing ability to heal itself even after considerable damage. As our primary barrier against microbes and the elements, it is key that we understand the dermal repair process and how to speed it. OCT […]
Raman spectroscopy beyond the fingerprint region proves ideal for polymer identification in high throughput sorting of plastics, discriminating within families & signaling the presence of additives.
1064 Raman can distinguish pure pisco from mixtures, identify grape variety, and quantify ethanol & methanol content for authentication of this liquor.
Wasatch Photonics VPH gratings offer optical and instrument designers a tremendous amount of flexibility to optimize performance for a specific application. In this tech note, we’ll discuss the benefits of the various standard and patented grating design technologies at our disposal, and the general grating parameters we can control to meet your specific needs.
OCT imaging has traditionally required the use of longer wavelengths to probe depths greater than a few millimeters in a single scan, bringing with it the higher cost associated with NIR detectors. Not to be deterred, we have developed an optical spectrometer design that allows us to achieve imaging […]
