Analog Modules (Longwood, FL ) has announced the release of its Pockels
Cell Driver, Model 823B. The Model 823B Pockels Cell/Shutter Driver is
designed for continuous pulsed applications. The compact construction
utilizes solid-state MOSFET technology, giving excellent trigger noise
immunity and a smooth output waveform. This technique eliminates common
problems associated with krytron, avalanche, and transformer drivers.
Amplitude is continuously variable up to 3.2kV by adjusting the
internal high voltage power supply with a risetime of 30ns typical at
full output. The output is push-pull, which yields high reliability by
halving the voltage swing per side and which effectively cancels the
EMI of the output pulse. Applications of the Model 823B include driving
E-O switches for Q-switching solid-state lasers, high voltage pulser,
and E-O Shutter.
