Repetition Rate Stabilization
The RRE-SYNCRO unit provides state-of-the art phase lock electronics. The complete, user-friendly system allows for plug & play use.
|RMS Timing Jitter||<200 fs [0.1 Hz–500 kHz] or same as reference, whichever applies first*|
|External Reference options||Master signal at repetition rate|
|Harmonic Master signal (RF or optical)|
|10 MHz (provided by customer or generated internally)|
|Repetition Rate||Signal level -20…-10 dBm|
|Stepper Motor||Stepper motor control, Sub-D, 9 pin|
|Piezo||Piezo control, BNO|
|Error||Error signal for monitoring, BNC|
* Values specified for Menlo Systems' Femtosecond fiber lasers. Please contact us when stabilizing lasers from other manufacturers to optimize performance of the RRE.
The main application is the synchronization of a pulsed laser to a radio frequency reference, derived from a radio frequency clock or an optical reference clock. An embedded microcontroller for the stepper motor and Piezo control in laser cavity ensures long-term stability.
