High-Voltage OPTICAL SWITCHES
The core of our high-voltage Pockels cell pulse generators are high performance solid state switches. All drivers are EMC conform to suite medical as well as research applications. They are available in a standard housing but can also be modified to meet the customers (spatial) requirements. The Pockels cell is usually mounted in a highvoltage chamber (+HVC) on top of a five-axis alignment stage (+AL5). The typical beam height is either 40mm.
Compared to high voltage linear amplifiers, pulse generators are limited to a digital-type operation (ON/OFF). Their advantages are very short rise/fall times, and pulsewidths as well as fast high voltage repetition rates (>kV, >1MHz).
