Where to Buy Optical Delay Lines

An optical delay line introduces a controlled time delay for a light beam. This is required for many types of interferometers (e.g. for OCT), communications devices, autocorrelators, electro-optic sampling and for pump–probe measurements. Some devices provide a variable delay, which can e.g. be periodically scanned.

optical delay lines

Gooch & Housego designs and manufactures custom modules – fiber assemblies of passive and/or active optical components integrated to provide higher functionality in a compact footprint. Customers sourcing fiber optic assemblies stay focused on their core competence while reducing time to market and development costs. Our in-depth understanding of optical component performance, combined with the use of low loss G&H products, ensures optimized designs. Advanced assembly techniques such as ribbon splicing and fiber recoating are used to provide robustness, reduce form factors, and minimize manufacturing costs.

At G&H, we take a custom module designs from specification all the way through to a manufactured product. We are expert in mechanical design for optics, fiber optics, and fiber assemblies. Our fiber assemblies include pigtailed lasers, spectrometers, optical delay lines, telescopes, and fiber collimators. The most complex assemblies can include bulk optics, fiber optics, motion control, and electronics.

optical delay lines

The APE ScanDelay is a variable optical delay line, allowing the introduction of a well-defined time delay into an optical path – for example, for pump–probe measurements. The delay is periodically controlled by a fast scanning shaker at a frequency of up to 20 Hz.

The heart of APE’s optical delay line series is a special linear translation stage that is supplied together with appropriate control and drive electronics. The linear drive has been designed especially for optical applications. It combines low moving mass with compactness, reaching a high speed, as well as high precision and resolution. The delay drive has frictionless movement, a large and precise travel range, and it allows for very small displacements without any stick-slip-effects.

The control electronic contains the motion driver and a quartz stabilized signal synthesizer. It can be synchronized with an external clock for a precise, phase-locked scanner movement.

optical delay lines

An optical delay line is a critical element of any ultrafast pump–probe (or pump–gate) set-up. Even a small change in the beam pointing (laser beam drift, moved mirrors, etc.) can compromise the quality of your data. This is why it is recommended to check the delay line alignment at least once a day. Alignment of the delay line normally requires special technical training and can be time consuming.

Ultrafast Systems’ patented Smart Delay Line™ system (Patent no.: US 10,209,131) fully restores the original alignment of your delay line in a few minutes. Very importantly, the original beam pointing after the delay line gets restored as well. This ensures that the optical setup “downstream” from the delay line will not require re-alignment. This significantly shortens the time needed to set up an experiment allowing for more up-time of the instrument. Additionally, this reduces the amount of technical training necessary for a user, thus making the spectrometer accessible to a larger group of researchers.
