ICE Box™: Integrated Control Electronics from Vescent Photonics

ICE_Angle_1-371x264Vescent Photonics has introduced ICE, a compact suite of digitally controlled electronics that will precisely drive and stabilise a broad range of semiconductor lasers and associated photonics tools.

The ICE system is based on the same high-performance D2 Series electronics that have established Vescent Photonics as the leader in laser control and stabilisation. It is fully compatible with all Vescent D2 modules and can be used to drive and control a complete stabilised-laser system; overseeing frequency and temperature, offset lock DBR, DFB, or External Cavity lasers.

Each ICE control board is commanded via a USB Virtual Communication Port programmed in a language such as LabVIEW™, MATLAB™, Python, Java, et al. An intuitive GUI can also be used to issue commands and control the experiment or, if installed in the ‘ICE Box’- a chassis that provides power and interface connections – a front-panel control is included.

For more information about this new product, or any other from Vescent Photonics, please contact us.


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

For more information about Vescent Photonics, their electro-opticwaveguide, and laser technology products, please contact us.
