  1. Vescent to show non-mechanical optical communication link at Photonics West (2/9/2016) - Golden, CO (14 Feb, 2016) Vescent Photonics will unveil a free-space optical communication (FSO) demonstration based on its unique liquid crystal waveguide technology. A completely non-mechanical, live optical link with multiplexed data transmission will be on display. The engine for establishing & maintaining the communication link is the SEEOR (Steerable Electro-Evanescent Optical Refractor), the 2015 […]
  2. Microresonator Frequency Comb Stabilization (1/25/2016) - Microresonator Frequency Comb Stabilization with the Vescent Photonics D2-125 Reconfigurable Servo The comb tooth spacing and its control are important parameters for building an effective frequency comb. Senior Research Scientist Dr. Shu-wei Huang at UCLA has used the Vescent Photonics D2-125 Reconfigurable Servo to stabilize the comb tooth spacing of a microresonator frequency comb and shares […]
  3. Photonics West (12/23/2015) - Vescent Photonics will be attending Photonics West at Moscone Center in San Francisco from 13 to 18 February, 2016.  We invite you to visit us at booth 4159 and see the latest developments in non-mechanical beam steering as well as lasers, electronics, and electro-optics for the AMO community. If you just can’t wait for your […]
  4. Large-Offset Phase Locks Application Note (12/8/2015) - We are pleased to provide an application note on the use of the D2-135 Offset Phase Lock Servo to acquire phase locks with frequency offsets to 43 GHz and potentially higher. Sideband Locking Application Note Normally the D2-135 OPLS is used to obtain a phase lock between slave and master lasers with a user-selected frequency offset […]
