Design and testing of prototype handheld scanning probes for optical coherence tomography.

Demian D, Duma VF, Sinescu C, Negrutiu ML, Cernat R, Topala FI, Hutiu G, Bradu A, Podoleanu AG - Proc Inst Mech Eng H (2014)

Bottom Line: The first two configurations were built exclusively from available off-the-shelf optomechanical components, which, to the best of our knowledge, are the first designs of this type.A previous testing with a swept source optical coherence tomography system has also been performed both in vivo and ex vivo for ear, nose, and throat-in a medical environment.In this study, testing the quality of the material of one of the most used types of dental prosthesis, metalo-ceramic is thus demonstrated.

Mounts designed and manufactured to accommodate different types and sizes of GSs in the different handheld probes developed (a) for the first variant of handheld probe (Figure 1) and for a Cambridge Technology (Bedford, MA, USA) GS with a 4 mm aperture of the galvo mirror and (b) for a GS of the same type, but with a 5 mm aperture. (c) The mount used in the second design (Figure 2) with a Thorlabs (Newton, NJ, USA) GS with a 5 mm aperture. (d) Blueprint of the latter mount.
