KD*P Pockels Cells

  • Economically priced
  • Compact size
  • Low absorption
  • Transmission from 400 nm to 1100 nm  

Applications:

  • Q-switching of the laser cavity
  • Cavity Dumping  

Pockels cells are used to change the polarization state of light passing through it when a voltage is applied to the electrodes of electro-optic crystals such as KD*P. When used in conjunction with polarizer, Pockels cells can be used as fast optical switches.

Typical applications include Q-switching of the laser cavity, laser cavity dumping and coupling light into and from regenerative amplifiers. KD*P based Pockels cells are routinely used for Q-switching applications from the 400 nm to about 1.1 μm. Most of commercial flashlamp pumped Nd:YAG lasers and low repetition rate DPSS Nd:YAG lasers are equipped with KD*P based Pockels cell for laser cavity Q-switching. Electro-optical KD*P crystals have high laser power resistant dielectric AR coatings. Additionally PC12SR and D-compact series Pockels cells have AR coated windows for improved lifetime and protection in less user friendly environment.
