We are pleased to announce the release of the OCT phantom.. The APL-OP01 Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) phantom is a device to qualitatively and quantitatively characterize the performance of an OCT system, including spatially varying resolution, sensitivity, distortion and scan linearity. The phantom contains four geometrical patterns inscribed within a substrate to form localized refractive index changes.
Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) is a noninvasive optical imaging modality that provides real-time, 3D images with micron-level resolution and millimeters of imaging depth. OCT images consist of structural information from a sample based on light backscattered from different layers of material within the sample. The noninvasive nature of OCT makes it well suited for imaging samples such as biological tissue e.g. retinal scanning but it is also used to produce high resolution 3D images of materials.
