Pulsed fiber lasers are critical to enable cost-effective, energy-efficient and low-maintenance industrial tools for precision marking and deep engraving applications. II-VI Photop is introducing to the market cost-effective acousto-optic modulators with low insertion loss that enable the pulsed operation of these lasers.     

“Our new acousto-optic modulator is a significant addition to II-VI’s existing portfolio of fiber laser components, including high power pump lasers, pump laser combiners and seed lasers,” said Vincent Lin, Director for Sales and Marketing, II-VI Photop. “We are excited to see the growing demand for our acousto-optic modulator and we are now focused on ramping up production.”

When placed in a laser cavity, an acousto-optic modulator periodically interrupts and resumes lasing activity to enable the build-up and release of laser energy within short pulses. The II-VI Photop acousto-optic modulators are currently available at radio frequencies of 100 and 120 MHz for fiber lasers operating at 1 micron wavelength. Upon request, they can be customized for other radio frequencies and wavelengths, including at 2 microns and in the visible spectrum.

II-VI Photop will showcase its acousto-optic modulators at SPIE Photonics West, Feb. 16-18, 2016, in San Francisco, CA, in Hall C, Booth # 2223.
