Optical Coherence Tomography is a technique for obtaining sub-surface images of translucent or opaque materials at a resolution equivalent to a low-power microscope. It is effectively â€˜optical ultrasoundâ€™, imaging reflections from within tissue to provide cross-sectional images.
There are many industrial, medical, and other applications where high resolution (generally less than 10 micrometer) images of, and measurements of distances, thicknesses, and optical properties of, a biological or other sample are required.
â€œMethod And Apparatus For Optical Imaging With Means For Controlling The Longitudinal Range Of The Sampleâ€ Issued US Patent 5,321,501, June 14, 1994. Filed 4/29/92. – A method and apparatus for performing optical imaging on a sample wherein longitudinal scanning or positioning in the sample is provided by either varying relative optical path lengths for an optical path leading to the sample and to a reference reflector, or by varying an optical characteristic of the output from an optical source applied to the apparatus. Transverse scanning in one or two dimensions is provided on the sample by providing controlled relative movement between the sample and a probe module in such direction and/or by steering optical radiation in the probe module to a selected transverse position. The probe module may be an external module or may be an endoscope or angioscope utilized for scanning internal channels. Multiple optical paths may be provided for parallel scanning and focus may be enhanced by varying the focal point in the sample in synchronism with longitudinal scanning of the sample.

Metal and Opaque Thin Film Measurement Solutions. Licensee's MetaPULSE family of metrology systems incorporates our proprietary technology for optical acoustic metrology, which allows customers to simultaneously measure the thickness and other properties of up to six metal or other opaque film layers in a non- contact manner on product wafers. By minimizing the need for test wafers, MetaPULSE enables Licensee's customers to achieve significant cost savings. Licensee believe that Licensee currently offer the only systems that can non-destructively measure up to six metal film layers with the degree of accuracy semiconductor device manufacturers demand. Licensee's MetaPULSE systems use ultra-fast lasers to generate sound waves that pass down through a stack of metal or opaque films such as copper and aluminum, sending back to the surface an echo which is detected and analyzed. These systems precisely measure the films with Angstrom accuracy and sub-Angstrom repeatability at high throughputs. This accuracy and repeatability is critical to semiconductor device manufacturers' ability to achieve higher manufacturing yields with the latest fabrication processes.
