Laser Servo gets positive feedback from users
Elliot Scientific has had commendations from laser scientists around the UK after trials with the D2-125 laser servo from Vescent Photonics.
Designed for low-noise servo control of lasers and other experimental systems, the reconfigurable servo is equipped with a PI2D loop filter (with two-stage integral feedback) that provides tight locking to cavities and atomic/molecular transitions.
The D2-125 provides full control over the loop-filter parameters, enabling servo-loop optimisation for a wide variety of systems such as acousto and electro-optic actuators, voice coils, piezo actuators, and so on.
Auto relocking is available for the D2-125 Laser Servo as an option. Lock Guard™ detects when the servo loop filter has gone out of lock and automatically recaptures it. Lock Guard™ control parameters are all user adjustable for maximum flexibility and optimal performance.
Key research areas for Vescent products are:
- Magneto-Optical Traps (MOT) for laser-cooling of atoms
- Coherent atom sources
- Sensors for gravitometry and magnetometry
- Focused ion beams
- Ultrasensitive trace-isotope analysis
- Quantum computing and cryptography
