Paper Abstract

A swept light source is a type of light source whose wavelength can be quickly tuned . Typically, a swept light source is composed of a high optical gain-medium such as a semiconductor optical amplifier (SOA) or optical gain module and a wavelength selective component. Inphenix has developed swept light sources that cover from 800nm to 1550nm wavelengths and are cost effective, highly linear and ideal for medical imaging and industrial measurement applications. Applications of swept light sources have been widely investigated in real time optical imaging, optical fiber sensor interrogator and optical component testing.
