Fiber laser diode driver - pulse and CW - and many other functionalities

This fiber laser diode driver is like a “control center” for fiber laser R&D and product development. It integrates two CW and pulsed laser diode drivers, six photodiode electronics, a pulse-picker synchronization tool and many other dedicated functionalities for every type of fiber laser architecture. See our detailed tutorial: fiber laser basics written in collaboration with our spin-off company: AeroDIODE.

This fiber laser diode driver makes you able to develop a complete fiber laser prototype in a few weeks. Its laser diode drivers are optimized for single-shot to CW performance with pulse width lengths down to 1 nanosecond and up to 3500 mA peak current. 

It is compatible with any type of fiber laser architectures: Mode-locked, Q Switch, MOPA, EOM modulation, Gain Switch, Microchip oscillators etc. 

The performances of this fiber laser diode driver have been optimized to be compatible with fiber lasers constraints in term of noise, precision, response time, interlock etc.

It can be easily connected with AeroDIODE boards, especially:

It is the central element of ALPhANOV Multiboard series which includes more than 20 innovations and makes fiber laser developments very efficient. See our tutorial: fiber modulator basics

These products are now offered by AeroDIODE, Logo_aerodiodea new ALPhANOV spin-off company. The product manager is available to answer any technical of commercial question.
