Leysop 6mm RTP Pockels Cell
This RTP Pockels cell has been fitted with two RTP crystals each only 7mm long, 6mm cross section.
The dimensions of these crystals give a half-wave voltage at 1064nm of 3.6kV. Since the application
only requires 10kHz maximum repetition rate, a KD*P driver has been modified for this cell, as this
driver will give the fastest rise time.
The oscilloscope trace below shows the measurement of the optical transmission in a single-pass setup
measured with a photodiode of risetime 1nsec.
Parameters: 1064nm, 3.6kV, time difference of On/Off triggers 10nsec.
This oscilloscope trace shows the measurement of the optical transmission in a single-pass setup
measured with a photodiode of risetime 1nsec. In order to reduce rise and fall times,the time
difference between the On/Off triggers was reduced, at the same time increasing the drive voltage
to the cell.
Parameters: 1064nm, 4.9kV, time difference of On/Off triggers 2nsec.
