DQF Pockels Cell Driver for Q-Switching for Flashlamp Pumped Lasers

DQF Pockels Cell Driver for Q-Switching for Flashlamp Pumped Lasers

DQF is designed for Q-switching of nanosecond flashlamp pumped lasers without use of phase retardation plate. High voltage is applied to Pockels cell in order to inhibit oscillation. Pockels cell is opened by negative polarity pulse allowing laser to

DQF series drivers are designed for Q-switching of nanosecond flashlamp pumped lasers without use of phase retardation plates. High voltage is applied to Pockels cell in order to inhibit oscillation. Pockels cell is opened by negative polarity pulse allowing laser to radiate.

 

Drivers DFQ-0.2-5D and DFQ-0.2-5B need an external HV power supply, PS-5 model is recommended.

 

Drivers DFQ-0.1-8D and DFQ-0.1-8B are integrated with 4 kV HV power supplies. Voltage control is done using CAN interface. We can offer CAN-USB converter with CAN browser software for Windows operating system. Converter must be ordered separately.

 

Drivers DQF-0.2-5D and DQF-0.1-8D are designed for operation with DKDP crystals, while drivers DQF-0.2-5B and DQF-0.1-8B are designed for BBO crystals.
