Supercontinuum Module

Supercontinuum Module 8ports

The Supercontinuum Module (SCM) is a frequency comb extension (available for FC1500-ULN-nova/plus and FC1500-Quantum) which delivers up to 8 beat signals between ultra-low-noise frequency comb light and different CW-lasers in the range of 650 to 1700 nm. It provides up to 8 CW-laser input ports (FC/APC, others on request) and delivers the according beat signals (between the CW-laser light and its closest neighboring comb mode) at up to 8 BNC output ports. The super-broad and smooth comb spectrum, combined with our latest generation of optical beat detection units, leads to high signal to noise ratio beat signals over the entire wavelength range (> 35 dB SNR).


SCM Scheme 3w


Since the supercontinuum-spectrum is produced from one single amplifier branch, it is the perfect tool for frequency comparisons of different optical clock species and other high-end applications. Additionally, it offers high-flexibility: you could start e.g. with 3 “beat detection channels” and extend the module at a later time. A Menlo service engineer can easily add new channels and/or adapt the already existing ones, directly on-site.


 SYNCRO3rd generation


 Latest developments in Frequency Comb- and Quantum laser systems demand for highest flexibility regarding synchronization and control electronics. The solution is Menlo’s 3rd generation SYNCRO unit, which serves as a modular carrier for various electronic boards: multiple lock boxes, butterfly packaged CW-lasers, low noise laser drivers, fiber noise cancelling electronics and more can be comprised within one single unit. The 7” touchscreen, combined with a rotary knob, provides easy access to all parameters and a convenient way for fine-adjustments. The completely redesigned user interface is split into a parameter settings list- and a ‘main-controls’ area which includes all major control elements for the corresponding feedback loop, laser driver or any other functional group you want to operate. Full remote control is provided via Menlo-Core-UI and application programming interfaces are available for Python, JavaScript, ECMAScript, C++ and C#.
