Optores GmbH is a pioneer in ultrafast swept lasers and optical coherence tomography. With sweep rates of several million OCT A-scans per second, Optores’ founders coined the term “MHz-OCT”. These ultrahigh speeds are ideal for novel OCT applications, such as real-time surgical guidance with 4D-OCT, large-area surveys, visualization of blood flow, and highthroughput industrial inspection.
Optores GmbH is a privately held company based in Munich, Germany. It was founded in 2013 based on Prof. Robert Huber’s groundbreaking work on Fourier-domain mode-locked lasers and ultrafast OCT, for which he was awarded the European inventor award 2018, together with OCT inventor Prof. James Fujimoto from MIT and Eric Swanson. Optores’ core technology is protected by several patents.
