Axsun Technologies is touting the development of its Tunable Vertical Cavity Surface Emitting Laser (Tunable VCSEL) platform designed for OCT imaging applications.
The Tunable VCSEL platform uses the company’s high performance optical integration and cost-effective volume manufacturing to create a single, compact butterfly package that enable higher performance and flexibility, reliability and scalability with low power consumption.
“While our patented external cavity laser designs offer excellent value and performance, such as wide tuning bandwidth and high power, Axsun’s Tunable VCSEL promises significant benefits in performance and scalability for targeted applications, and we are excited about our progress in this area,” said Peter Whitney, Axsun’s founder and chief science officer, in a press release. “Based on our proven MEMS and optical hybrid packaging technology, we are confident that our VCSEL will provide a superior solution for many existing and emerging OCT imaging applications.”
Axsun Technologies is working with medical imaging OEMs on customized development of products that are based on the new tunable VCSEL platform.
“We are extremely proud of the ongoing commercial adoption and technical success we have had with our core technology,” said Axsun CEO Jonathan Hartmann. “This next generation of Axsun technology will build on that to offer even greater value and performance to our customers. We look forward to partnering with our customers to bring this technology to the market.”
The company plans to announce commercial availability and technical performance later this year.
