WALTHAM, Mass. — Excelitas Technologies Corp. has announced Qioptiq’s Linos Double BBO High-Repetition Pockels Cells (DBBPC HR), specifically designed for fast Q-switching as required in regenerative amplifiers of pulse pickers.
Two crystals are featured in an optical series to enable a 1.3-MHz switching rate. Standard specifications include apertures of 2.7 or 3.2 mm, a wavelength of 1030 nm and 98 percent transmittance. The pockels cells feature reduced switching voltage and are suitable for quarter- and half-wave mode applications, as well as Q-switching, cavity dumping, regenerative amplifiers and pulse pickers.
Applications include use in ultrafast lasers for micromaterial processing, ophthalmology and fluorescence spectroscopy, as well as laser manufacturers and scientific institutions.
