|Abstract:||A MEMS optical coherence tomography (OCT) probe prototype was developed using a unique assembly based on silicon optical bench (SiOB) methodology. The probe is formed by integrating a three-dimensional (3D) scanning micromirror, gradient refractive index (GRIN) lens and optical fiber on SiOB substrates having prefabricated self-aligned slots. The two-axis scanning micromirror is based on electrothermal actuation with required voltage less than 2 V for mechanical deflections up to 17°. The optical probe was enclosed within a biocompatible, transparent and waterproof polycarbonate tube with a view of in vivo diagnostic applications. The diameter of the miniature probe is less than 4 mm and the length of its rigid part is about 25 mm. The probe engineering and proof of concept of the probe were demonstrated by obtaining en face and three-dimensional OCT images of an IR card used as a standard sample. © 2008 IOP Publishing Ltd.|
