Introducing the NEW Cobra-D Spectrometer for Ultradeep 800nm OCT Imaging

19 Mar 2024

Achieve imaging up to 12 mm in air at 800 nm with the NEW Cobra-D OCT spectrometer, ideal for ophthalmology and industrial applications.

OCT imaging has traditionally required the use of longer wavelengths to probe depths greater than a few millimeters in a single scan, bringing with it the higher cost associated with NIR detectors. That’s why we have developed the Cobra-D, a unique optical spectrometer design with ultra-fine spectral resolution that allows you to achieve imaging depths of up to 12 mm using 800 nm OCT. These 800 nm OCT spectrometers deliver the same depth and axial resolution as their NIR equivalents, thereby opening up new possibilities for cost-effective measurement of features over a wider range of depths.

Applications that can benefit from long-range imaging include ophthalmology, medicine, and nondestructive process monitoring of additive printing and laser machining. Due to the high stakes in these applications, we’ve backed the performance of our Cobra-D models with industrial-grade mechanical and thermal stability. 


  • Greater detection sensitivity through the use of CCD vs InGaAs cameras
  • Robust mechanical and thermal stability for critical applications
  • Faster measurement speeds (up to 250 kHz)
  • Optional USB 3.0 interface up to 130 kHz
  • Lower overall cost

Our new Cobra-D series 800 nm OCT spectrometers have been designed to minimize roll-off with diffraction-limited optics and a low-crosstalk detector, ensuring high clarity images even at extended depths. Axial resolution is similar to the comparable model from our Cobra 1300 series, or slightly better.

The new Cobra-D spectrometers can be used for OCT imaging in the 800-880 nm range in medical and industrial OEM solutions, with multiple bancwidth options to balance resolution and imaging depth. Let our expert team put together a configuration that is right for your application. Contact us to learn more, discuss your specific application, or explore other wavelength & camera options.
