Pockels Cell Driver
Pockels Cell Drivers: A wide variety of laser switching applications, including active q-switching. utilize Pockels cells, which is a type of high-speed electro-optic shutter. Our Pockels cell drivers utilize solid-state MOSFET technology. This technology provides excellent trigger noise immunity and a smooth output waveform. Furthermore, this technique eliminates common problems associated with krytron, avalanche, and transformer drivers. Therefore, 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. Finally, most of our Pockels cell drivers are customized to meet the needs of the end user.
