Electro Optical Components, Inc. Datasheets for Q-switches

Q-switches are devices used in the optical resonator of a laser to prevent lasing action until a high level of inversion is achieved in the lasing medium.

Product Name Notes
For most normal applications such as Q-switching and laser beam modulation, the standard EM500 and EM500M ranges of longitudinal Pockels cells are very adequate. Rise-times achievable with these devices can...
In the field of electro-optics, there are very few occasions when something truly unique is developed. However, one such event was the advent of the new electro-optic material RTP. It...
Leysop Compact Pockels Cells are especially suited to OEM laser equipment manufacture where a smaller size and simpler interconnect are needed. Both 8mm and 10mm aperture versions are currently available,...
Probably the most common and attractive mode of operation of an electro-optic Q-switch is in "pulsed quarter wave" mode. In this mode a quarter wave retardation plate is inserted between...
Prompted by a need for even smaller components than our model EM510C we have developed this latest model EM508UC to provide a full, 8mm aperture in a package only 19mm...
Technically we should be discussing b-BBO to distinguish it from the a-BBO form which although chemically identical has a center of symmetry in its crystal structure which robs it of...
The compact Pockels cell models EM508M-EM512M have for many years satisfied the needs of our customers for smaller (compared to the EM500 range) Pockels cells for OEM applications. With size...
The EM500 series of KD*P longitudinal Pockels cells have been designed to give the lowest possible switching times using 50Ωline techniques and are normally used for Q-switching lasers. These cells...
This useful type of Pockels cell is designed particularly for use in pulse slicing and pulse picking applications. Using just one crystal of KD*P, it is essentially two Pockels cells,...
Unlike the EM500 range of Pockels cells, the transverse field Pockels cells can be made in a more flexible range of sizes and in a greater choice of materials. The...
Unlike transverse mode Pockels cells where the half wave voltage is dependent upon the ratio of length to width (between electrodes), the half wave voltage for a longitudinal field cell...
