What's the best way to modulate my laser beam – AOM or EOM?

With the wide variety of laser beam modulators out there, choosing the right one can be daunting.

Our new technical paper  provides clear guidance on how to identify the best option for your  specific needs.

Download this new resource to understand the basic operating principles of the two most common laser beam modulators: acousto-optic modulators (AOMs) and electro-optic modulators (EOMs).

Compare the specifications of AOM and EOM on performance, cost, and reliability to inform your next project and find the best solution to optimize your technology needs.  




AOMs v EOMs: choosing a laser modulator

The  technical paper explains the key differences between acousto-optic modulators and electro-optic modulators in detail, including:  

•    insertion loss
•    transmission efficiency
•    contrast ratio/extinction
•    power and energy handling
•    damage threshold


Plus, there is a handy guide to the typical applications of both types of laser modulators.

EOM: explore uses cases for Q-switching in military lasers, high-energy lasers and Alexandrite lasers for medical applications.

AOM: discover how they are used in materials processing systems, pulse picking in ultrafast laser systems and as fast deflectors in confocal microscopy.
