  4. Active intensity noise suppression for a broadband mid-infrared laser source (2/5/2018) - The D2-125 Reconfigurable Servo was originally designed to lock a cw laser to an error signal such as a narrow atomic absorption line or a high-finesse cavity.  But Marinus Huber from the Ludwig-Maximilians-University and the Max-Planck-Institute for Quantum Optics and his colleagues have also used it to control the intensity of an ultrafast mid-ir laser.  […]
  5. Jumping the Lock Point of a D2-125 Reconfigurable Servo (1/8/2018) - By using the Absolute or Relative Jump functions in the advanced features set of the D2-125 Reconfigurable Servo, it is possible to move the lock point from one error feature to another.  In this Application Note we demonstrate this capability by jumping the laser wavelength from one hyperfine transition to another and then recapturing lock. […]
