Where to Buy Intensity Modulators

A wide range of intensity modulators is available for applications in optical communications, optical measurements, and laser technology. These modulators use various mechanisms, such as electro-optic, acousto-optic, and electroabsorption effects, to control the intensity of light precisely.

Before You Buy: Learn About Intensity Modulators

With its comprehensive resources, RP Photonics helps you to well prepare purchase decisions:

Some aspects to consider before buying intensity modulators: modulation depth, modulation bandwidth, wavelength range, insertion loss, power handling capability, optical nonlinearity, voltage requirements, compatibility with driver electronics, thermal stability, size and weight, mounting and alignment options.

intensity modulators

With the introduction of the OM6N series of high-speed optical modulators, Thorlabs has designed and developed a new all-reflective technology based on deformable mirrors for modulating laser power in the 700 – 1350 nm range. This Pockels cell or AOM alternative introduces nearly zero dispersion to ultrafast laser pulses.

intensity modulators

Electro-optic crystals with suitable drivers are used to modulate the laser beam intensity with frequencies up to 100 MHz. Standard and customer-specific devices are available. The intensity modulators series is complemented with acousto-optic modulators for the standard laser wavelengths.

intensity modulators

AeroDIODE has developed the fiber modulator – a high-speed intensity modulator and optical switch based on a semiconductor optical amplifier (SOA). It is available over a wide wavelength range from 750 to 1650 nm. Key features are high speed (down to 1 ns rise/fall time), high dynamic range (>48 dB), high extinction ratio (>50 dB) and an easy to use graphical user interface with multiple software libraries (LabVIEW, Python etc.). AeroDIODE also offers the semiconductor optical amplifier alone or the SOA driver alone in either CW or pulsed configuration.

AeroDIODE also offers a wide range of fiber coupled AOMs (Acousto Optic Modulators) with various types of digital (TTL) or analog RF drivers.
