Cobra OCT Spectrometer Series

Explore the industry-leading OCT spectrometer


Cobra-SpectrometersWasatch Photonics’ Cobra OCT spectrometer products fit a surprising amount of resolution, performance, and value into one small box. Beginning with our world-class volume phase holographic gratings, we’ve applied our expertise in spectroscopy to the unique needs of optical coherence tomography (OCT). Our compact, high-throughput OCT spectrometer designs provide exquisite detail at depths where other SD-OCT spectrometers struggle.

Our optimized OCT spectrometers offer many clear advantages: compact size, high throughput, minimal polarization dependence, optimal camera design and excellent roll-off performance. We offer these benefits at wavelengths from 400-1700 nm, ideally suited for use in both research and OEM applications. The Cobra OCT spectrometer line’s unique engineering and optical design allow us to provide all of these features at a surprisingly affordable price, simplifying the decision of buy vs build.
