The KMLabs Halcyon™ repetition-rate stabilized oscillator is popular with customers who need to synchronize oscillator laser pulses with pulses from another laser or with a synchrotron. Electronics included with the Halcyon™ lock its output to the customer’s reference signal and can provide timing jitter of less than 150 fs. Stabilization of the repetition rate is achieved through multiple features including a temperature-stabilized breadboard, a motorized stage for coarse feedback, and a small piezo-mounted mirror for fast feedback. The KMLabs team works closely with each Halcyon™ customer to ensure that the system meets their specific needs. Due to the flexible design of the Halcyon™, it can lock to reference signals over a very wide range: 75 MHz to 4 GHz.
