Pockels Cell Driver Overview
Pockels cells are high-speed electro-optic shutters, which are used in a wide variety of laser switching application including active q-switching. Our Pockels cell drivers utilize solid-state MOSFET technology which provides excellent trigger noise immunity and a smooth output waveform. This technique eliminates common problems associated with krytron, avalanche, and transformer drivers because the amplitude is continuously variable by adjusting the internal high voltage power supply. Also, all of our Pockels cell drivers meet the stringent reliability requirements for medical and industrial applications, and most of the Pockels cell drivers are customized to meet the needs of the end user.
