Slimline ICE models launched by Vescent Photonics at recent CLEO’17

After several years in development, the first in a new range of Slimline ICE (SLICE) models was launched by Vescent Photonics at the recent CLEO’17 meeting.

The SLICE-QT is a four-channel temperature controller for thermally stabilising a photonic device, laser or non-linear crystal.

The QT is compatible with both TECs and resistive heaters, and features auto tuning along with 40 watts of control power available to the user.

Atom Optics & Spectroscopy benefit from Photodigm Laser Diodes

Photodigm specialises in manufacturing high power single spatial and longitudinal mode laser diodes. By incorporating their proprietary DBR – Distributed Bragg Reflector – technology within a monolithic architecture, Photodigm delivers unequalled performance for researchers requiring excellent spectral purity and superior beam quality with high output powers, whilst ensuring long term reliability and stability. Typical high-resolution spectroscopy applications include:

  • Atomic and Molecular Optical Physics
  • Cold Atom Spectroscopy & Precision Instrumentation, for example:Photodigm logo
    • Advanced gravimeters
    • Magnetometers
    • Atomic clocks
    • Gyroscopes
  • Raman Spectroscopy, Interferometry, Lidar and Metrology

With a narrow linewidth on the order of 1 MHz, and powers up to 300 mW, Photodigm DBR lasers are uniquely suited to numerous precision projects.

ICE Box™: Integrated Control Electronics from Vescent Photonics

ICE_Angle_1-371x264Vescent Photonics has introduced ICE, a compact suite of digitally controlled electronics that will precisely drive and stabilise a broad range of semiconductor lasers and associated photonics tools.

The ICE system is based on the same high-performance D2 Series electronics that have established Vescent Photonics as the leader in laser control and stabilisation. It is fully compatible with all Vescent D2 modules and can be used to drive and control a complete stabilised-laser system; overseeing frequency and temperature, offset lock DBR, DFB, or External Cavity lasers.

Each ICE control board is commanded via a USB Virtual Communication Port programmed in a language such as LabVIEW™, MATLAB™, Python, Java, et al. An intuitive GUI can also be used to issue commands and control the experiment or, if installed in the ‘ICE Box’- a chassis that provides power and interface connections – a front-panel control is included.
