Locking the Repetition Rate of a Menhir-1550 Laser

In order to reduce the phase noise of a pulsed laser, it may be disirable to lock the repetition rate of the laser to a stable reference such as GPS.  In this applicaiton note we demonstrate locking the repetition rate of a 1 GHz Menhir-1550 mode-locked laser to an external timing reference signal.

Vescent – Leading Laser Manufacturer and Developer of Precision Laser and Electro-optic Technologies

Vescent is a developer and manufacturer of novel electro-optic and precision laser technologies. Vescent offers frequency-stabilized narrow linewidth diode laser systems, precision control electronics, accessory electro-optic modules, mode-locked lasers and frequency combs.

Our scientists and engineers are continuously developing cutting-edge design solutions to laser manufacturing technical challenges.  We are adding to our SLICE line of laser control electronics that includes the unique SLICE-QTC four-channel temperature controller for lasers and electro-optics and the SLICE-DHV high-bandwidth PZT controller and high-voltage amplifier.


The family of Vescent frequency comb products is growing.  The turnkey FFC-100 and Modular FFC-CM series is now joined by the capability to lock optical frequency ƒopt to visible and near infrared (NIR) wavelength comb teeth from 650 to 1600 nm and beyond.  Through non-linear frequency conversion techniques, we have generated lockable comb teeth down to 650 nm.
