ICETM System Diagram

An example of a 2-laser ICE system.

2-laser-ICEICE – 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.  A slave laser is offset phase locked to the primary standard.  Future ICE products will drive amplifiers and magnetic coils.

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.
