Ultrafast photonic devices for biomedical applications
The target mission of CareGlance is to break into international market with an innovative device enabling ultrafast and portable eye desease diagnosys and followup. CareGlance also aims to boost economical and occupational impact on its geographical area.
The core product is an ultrafast swept source for optical coherent tomography (OCT) systems, granting real-time (1 MHz) operation and compactness. The developed technology is based on a micro-optics based tunable external cavity laser approach: it will also enable real-time surgery with 3D istantaneous imaging of tissues under surgical procedures.
