Large Aperture Pockels Cell v2017

The Dausinger + Giesen Pockels cell v2017 is designed to operate with high pulse energy. The large BBO crystal is used to operate the Pockels-cell with pulse energy levels of up to 200 mJ in regenerative amplifiers or even more in cavity dumped systems. It is also tested with several 100 Watt average power in pulsed operation mode.
