Fiber-Coupled Laser Frequency Shifter LFS-0700-15-100

Locking to a fixed resonance may give you the highest performing stable laser, but it can’t always deliver the frequency you need.

Our double-pass acousto-optic modulator design employs rock-solid engineering to precisely tune the frequency of your ultra-stable laser anywhere between cavity modes, limited only by the tuning range of your laser source. Whether you need to dynamically shift your laser frequency to cool and trap atoms, or if you simply want to compensate for residual cavity drift, our Laser Frequency Shifter facilitates broad frequency shifting without optical realignment.
