Overview of Acousto-optic Modulator (AOM)

AOM is designed to be used for fast controlling the intensity of the Ti:Sapphire laser. The blanking function is provided for the on/off RF modulation of the laser intensity by an external TTL clock up to 1 MHz; this utility enables many applications such as PLIM (Phosphorescence Lifetime Imaging).

Compatible with Q2, and PL1.
