Ultrafast pulse picking systems are tailored for operation with femtosecond lasers. Our pulse picking systems can be synchronized with lasers generating pulse train with max 100 MHz repetition rate, for single pulse picking task. When the system is synchronized with the laser operation then pulse picker can select single pulses (or work at programmable burst modes) at up to 2 MHz rate.
Digital synchronization and delay pulse generator pMaster 4.2 synchronizes pulse picker with laser operation and triggers it to launch λ/4 or λ/2 operation of Pockels cell. Laser pulses with switched polarization are redirected from the train using high laser induced damage threshold thin film laser polarizers, which can also be provided by EKSMA Optics.
