Acousto-Optical Components

Q-Switch

Q-Switches

AOMs can be used to diffract light out of its beam path, reducing the Q-factor of a cavity and preventing lasing. An additional application can be pulse picking.

Key Features:

  • High damage threshold
  • High efficiency
  • Compact packaging
  • Water- or conduction-cooled versions available
  • Optional AOM drivers available

Acousto optical modulators

Modulators

AOMs can also be configured to create a diffractive sound grating in the modulator crystal. In this manner, they can be used as attenuators, shutters or frequency shifters for example.

Key Features:

  • Compact packaging
  • Conduction-cooled
  • High efficiency
  • High damage threshold
