DLC MDL pro
Tunable ECDLs for rack integration
- For 19 Inch Standard Rack
- Narrow Linewidth
- Tunable & Frequency Lock
- Light Provided by Single Mode PM Fibers
- Digital Control for Best Performance
The MDL pro combines up to four narrow-linewidth tunable diode lasers in one compact sub-rack. This solves many problems of modern atomic optics: It simplifies complex operations because all integrated lasers are controlled using only one unified interface. Furthermore, it clears optical tables and stows away the lasers in a 19-inch standard subrack. This enables researchers to focus on their experiment instead of the laser system. The MDL pro is also transportable which fulfills the need of next-generation AMO systems and supports further compactification and mobilization of state-of-the-art lab-based experiments.
The MDL pro is a 2HU 19-inch rack element that integrates tunable single-mode laser modules at wavelengths between 369 and 1625 nm. These modules are based on TOPTICA's DL pro or DFB lasers. Up to four individual modules can be selected and combined freely in the MDL pro. All laser diodes from TOPTICA stock lists are available.
The integrated lasers of the MDL pro achieve the same ultimate performance as TOPTICA's established DL pro or DFB pro series: Unprecedented passive stability, unique locking solutions and narrow linewidth. Each laser is fiber-coupled (using FiberDock) independently to allow for flexible integration into existing setups. A drawer slide design enables quick access and easy service.
The laser modules of the MDL pro are controlled with TOPTICA's DLC pro. With a touch screen, knobs and buttons this 3HU laser controller enables a unique user convenience, combined with a low-noise operation and intelligent locking functions due to its digital architecture. It also enables a remote control of the integrated laser modules.
