DigiLock

Digital laser locking module

  • FPGA-based laser locking: Fast & flexible
  • Fully digital and computer controlled
  • Fast response, high bandwidth
  • Multiple PIDs, Lock In, Pound-Drever-Hall, FFT, network analysis
  • Click & Lock, Auto- & ReLock, response, simulation

TOPTICAs DigiLock 110 is the versatile solution for laser control, stabilization, characterization & analysis. Its digital nature makes it easy to use, flexible and intelligent. The FPGA based hardware allows for high bandwidth and flexibility, and with its clever software one has the overview, but can go into every tiny detail if need be.
