  • Patent number: 11197605
    Abstract: Improved scanning ophthalmoscopes for scanning the retina of an eye are discussed in the present disclosure. One example scanning ophthalmoscope includes an uncollimated light source, a first scanning element, a second scanning element, a slit of a first aspherical mirror, and a second aspherical mirror. The uncollimated light source produces a beam of light to illuminate the retina. The beam of light is relayed from the first scanning element onto the second scanning element by the slit of the first aspherical mirror. The second aspherical mirror relays the beam of light from the second scanning element to the pupil of the eye.

  • Publication number: 20180081629
    Abstract: A method includes interpreting a number of distributed data sets including resource utilization values corresponding to a plurality of distributed hardware resources, creating an approximation of a number of distributions corresponding to the distributed data set, aggregating the created approximations, and the aggregating includes weighting values determined from each of the distributed data sets, such that the aggregated approximations are representative of the distributed data sets. The method further includes creating a number of polynomial terms in response to the created approximations, thereby providing a utilization profile, and solving for a utilization percentile value within the aggregated approximations, where the solving is performed without reference to the distributed data set.

  • Patent number: 8783868
    Abstract: Various approaches are disclosed for simultaneously generating optical coherence tomography (OCT) and confocal scanning laser images by spatially separating the signal normally used for OCT imaging with selective reflecting or beam directing devices. In one preferred embodiment, the invention includes a mirror having a central transmission region, such that the radially outer region of the returning signal beam is reflected and used for generating a confocal image while the central part of the signal beam is transmitted and used to generate an OCT image. In other embodiments, the signals may be spatially separated in other ways, such as with an optic having a reflective center surface, a mirror having two parts oriented at different angles, one or more wedged optics, or a dispersive component. A further aspect of the invention is the ability to increase the frame rate of the confocal imaging.
