The Synchrolock-AP is used to accurately synchronize two Mira or Micra lasers together, or to synchronize a Mira or Micra laser to an external RF source. Operating in the femtosecond or picosecond (Mira only) regime, the Synchrolock-AP allows smooth wavelength tuning while keeping the lasers synchronized.
Three separate actuators operate at different locations inside the laser head to compensate low, medium and high frequencies. The actuators are controlled by feedback electronics while a high-speed photodiode simultaneously monitors the laser repetition-rate.
The Synchrolock-AP uses the 9th harmonic content of the photodiode signal to provide a higher signal-to-noise ratio, which leads to tighter jitter lock. In this way Synchrolock-AP provides extremely low jitter while ensuring long-term stability.
