Acousto-Optic Mode Lockers

Acousto-optic mode lockers modulate the loss within a laser cavity at its resonant frequency, effectively “locking” the phase of the longitudinal modes to generate very narrow laser pulses of high intensity.

Our acousto-optic mode lockers are manufactured using high-quality fused silica, polished and fabricated in-house to ensure high quality and reliability. We achieve >99% transmission at 1064 nm by using a durable in-house antireflection V-coat.

For transmission over a broader range of wavelengths (700–1100 nm), we recommend using windows cut to the Brewster angle. Low scatter and tight quality controls ensure that every mode locker is capable of handling high peak laser power over the long term without damage.
