Visible Wavelength Fiber-Q

Gooch & Housego manufactures a range of Fiber coupled Acousto-Optic devices for use in pulsed fiber laser amplifier systems, and has now produced visible wavelength versions for microscopy and instrumentation applications. The G&H Visible Wavelength Fiber-Q is based on the company’s infra-red fibre coupled products and incumbent visible free space solutions.

Concentrating primarily on polarisation maintaining products, G&H have demonstrated high PER and low insertion loss using qualified processes and industry standard TeO2 cells. Depending on the specific wavelength required, optimised PM or SM visible fibre is used.

Scientific lasers and Biophotonics applications such as fluorescence microscopy, confocal microscopy, imaging and spectroscopy are the primary applications for instruments requiring visible Fiber-Qs.

Fibre connectorised versions and optimised RF drivers to drive the Fiber-Q are also available.
