NEW BLUE LIGHT PULSE GENERATOR AT 405 NM
Berkeley Nucleonics is introducing the new Model 040 Light Pulse Generator. The new module leverages state of the art laser chip production and efficient packaging techniques to deliver 10mW of calibrated light pulses at 405nm. The light is delivered via a single-mode optical fiber coupled to an FC connector. Custom fibers and connectors include Polarization Maintaining and Multi-Mode fibers, and ST or SMA front panel connectors. Rates up to 10MHz with pulse delay and width resolution of 1nS are provided. An impulse mode delivers a sub-nanosecond, fixed with pulse in single or double pulse modes.
As a group, the light pulse generators offer unmatched flexibility in optical signal control for benchtop testing, R&D, simulations and optical component design. The optical signals are programmable and are married to a TTL and ECL output for addition setup controls. Power levels are adjustable in 10 microwatt steps. The system includes interlock safety and keyswitch controls. The safety features of the new product meet IATA and FDA Class 1, Class II and Class IIIB safety requirements. The instrument is manufactured in compliance with CFR Title 21, Chapter 1, Sub-Chapter J and with reporting policies compliant with CFR Title 21, Part 1002/1003.
“The breakthrough is diode technology enables Berkeley Nucleonics to source efficient, low power blue chip lasers for fast pulsing applications. Testing of PMT tubes, optical circuits and switches, photodiode production or sensor calibration are some of the immediate applications”, comments John Yee, Applications Manager.
