IMAGING, OPTICAL AND LASER MEDICAL DEVICE ENGINEERING
Cogmedix provides comprehensive product development and commercialization services leveraging our team of laser and optics experts. The Cogmedix Engineering Services team is comprised of industry leaders with a vast knowledge of optical engineering, electrical engineering, software engineering, and mechanical engineering. A high concentration of the products we engineer are based on a laser or imaging optical system that provides the primary function and is the most critical system component. We are able to assist you at any phase of the product development process and are fully equipped to bring your product to market with the highest levels of quality, compliance and customer satisfaction.
Cogmedix utilizes a proprietary medical device engineering process, known as Design for Compliance and eXcellence™ (DFcx™). We are able to bring our customers’ vision to life through a phase gate approach with continuous improvement and open communication built in.
EXCELLENCE IN OPTICAL AND LASER ANALYSIS AND MODELING
When modeling laser beam delivery systems, it is critical to understand the impact of the laser radiation coherence on the performance requirements. Diffraction and interference effects can degrade the intensity uniformity of the spot on target which is often critical in medical applications. We can analyze these effects using physical optics modeling and have an accurate prediction of the laser radiation intensity distribution on target. Another important aspect of designing laser beam delivery systems is back focus analysis. Understanding the risks of reflected energy on optical components, we can perform a back reflection analysis to ensure that when the optical design requires surfaces that focus the back-reflected light, the location of such spots are away from susceptible surfaces.
Considering that optical elements are often times among the most expensive and longest lead components of the system, thorough optical system modeling is critical. It provides us with close approximation of real-life performance and allows us to minimize development costs and schedule impact due to optical design oversights or errors.
The design of an optical system starts with the review of product requirements from which the proposed solution is derived. This is followed by performance estimates and detailed optical system modeling using raytracing software, such as Zemax. Cogmedix has extensive experience with both imaging and laser delivery optical systems and understanding of how their modeling relates to the physical system performance.
