Also known as a Bragg cell, this feature uses the acousto-optic effect to diffract and shift the frequency of laser light using sound waves. Mounting this unit outside the laser resonator enables a pulse repetition frequency of 200kHz with pulse widths of only a few hundred nanoseconds.

• Gate the CW beam produced from the laser for highly controlled, discrete pulse trains in the nanosecond regime

• 85% depth of modulation in the zero order mode, 100% in the first order deflected beam
