The MEMS-VCSEL swept source and the imaging module are both packaged into a single housing, including the scanning electronics and an interferometer with a balanced detector. Several key hardware controls can be adjusted using the included ThorImageOCT software, such as polarisation controllers, sensor gain, as well as reference arm length and intensity.
Balanced detector output signal show the interference fringes signal.
