Cobra OCT Spectrometers

Explore the industry-leading OCT spectrometer


Cobra SeriesWasatch Photonics’ Cobra OCT spectrometers 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 spectrometer designs provide exquisite detail at depths where other SD-OCT spectrometers struggle.

Ideally suited for use in both research and OEM applications, Cobra spectrometers offer many clear advantages over other devices: compact size, high throughput, minimal polarization dependence, optimal camera design and excellent roll-off performance. The Cobra 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.
