An example of a 4-laser ICE system.
ICE – Integrated Control Electronics – is a compact suite of digitally controlled electronics that will precisely drive and stabilize our D2-100 DBR lasers and an associated array of photonics tools. This flexible tool allows for myriad configurations. As seen, ICE is driving a master laser which is frequency locked to an atomic hyperfine transition. Three slave lasers are offset phase locked to this primary standard allowing for atom-referenced frequency agility.
The ICE system is under your control via serial commands or the ICE GUI. A PC-compatible computer (not included in purchase) is necessary for this control.
