Pulse picking is the selecting of a pulse from a mode locked train. In this way an arbitrary waveform may be built up. For full-text searches, use our search page. Apertures range from 8mm to 20mm and cells can be configured with either 1, 2 or 4 terminals depending on your interconnection requirements. However, it is a very simple technique and is easily adjustable. Although pulses in mode locked trains are typically sub ps the gate used for pulse picking is generally nearer the two round trip times.

We can offer you our standard devices eep picking single pulse from femtosecond pulse train with following specification:. Aperture is presently limited to 8 or 10mm.

However, it is a very simple technique and is easily adjustable.

Pockels Cells | Gooch & Housego

The regenerative build up time may be up hugh a microsecond or more and low jitter delays of this duration are needed for reproducible operation. Separate drivers allow the generation of fast edges for both turn on and turn off of the cell.

Gep of the pulse generator manufactured by Kentech are suitable for driving pockels cells. Extra cavity pulse chopping is not nearly as efficient as intra-cavity pulse shaping or pulse compression by, for example, Brillouin back scatter.

In the case of an electro-optic device, a pulse picker consists of a Pockels cell and some polarizing optics, e. Also please send me a price list with if any possible discount in your earliest convenient time. Kentech can supply suitable trigger circuits for this purpose. Cells are supplied dry with AR coating for maximum optical power handling and are offered for the wavelength range nm.


Pulse Pickers

Pockels cell driver should be mounted into dielectric box should be ordered separately providing electrical insulation. Cells can be supplied fluid filled for low loss or dry for the highest optical power handling.

This means that slowly varying drive pulses can be used and that changes in timing will not greatly affect the transmission of the pulse picker. In this case both pulse trains of cross polarzied beams are required. Components of a standard pulse hhigh These crystals are grown in Quantum’s laboratories with tight control of growth and fabrication processes.

Some crystals used for pockels cell have significant peizzo electric effects.

Pulse picker or Pockels cell to control the polarization

External high-frequency or optical reference High-voltage pulse with adjustable delay High-voltage pulse with adjustable amplitude Two additional sync channels High contrast Low jitter Applications – Pulse selection – Pulse Slicing – Q-switching. These are effectively back-to-back Pockels cells which can then be driven independently to turn on and off the transmission of the optical beam with great precision and flexibility.

Typical pulses in mode locked trains are 7 to 12 ns apart depending upon the length of the mode locked cavity in use. It is not possible to have very fast large aperture devices even if the capacitance is kept small. The principle of an acousto-optic pulse picker is to apply a short RF pulse to the acousto-optic modulator so as to deflect the wanted pulse into a slightly modified direction.


Pockels cells are used for many applications mainly within laser systems. Sorry, we don’t have an article for that keyword! This system can pick out pulse from pulsed or CW mode-locked lasers, or CW Q-switched mode locked lasers. For both cases, I cannot afford any kind rwte circulating cooling system because of vibration issue. Although there are a variety of methods, pockels cells are often used.

The use of a three electrode cell allows complete decopupling of a pair of drivers without increasing the number of optical surfaces. Pulse Pickers Find more supplier details at the end of the encyclopedia articleor go to our List of suppliers for pulse pickers.

DQ High Repetition Rate Pockels Cell Driver for Q-Switching

In some cases it may be necessary to use a clean up system after the pulse, depending upon the application and requirements. Fast HV less than 7 ns edge ensures uigh pre- and post-pulse contrast.

Pismo OG Pockels cell crystal: Pickels to operate at high pulse repetition rates makes this driver perfect fit for most of diode-pumped nanosecond lasers. With a pair of polarisers around a pockels cell the laser light may be chopped very quickly with a fast high voltage driver.
