Fibre-coupled AOM for pulsed fibre lasers

Gooch and Housego has launched its fibre-coupled AOM (acousto-optics module) designed for use in pulsed fibre laser amplifier systems, achieving optimum performance in demanding applications such as material processing.

The Fibre Q offers a high reliability, rugged and compact hermetically-sealed package. The device is optimised to achieve low insertion loss with high extinction ratio and optical power handling. This has been achieved through the development of a new manufacturing platform combining the group's world renowned capabilities in both acousto-optics and fibre packaging. This new generation of fibre-coupled acousto-optic modulator has been designed to meet the needs of today's more demanding requirements, it is significantly smaller and more robust than existing products. 

The fibre-coupled AOM is available from AMS Technologies, official distributor of Gooch and Housego, in Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg, Spain, Portugal and Switzerland.
