Elliot Scientific Introduces the new ICE Box

ICE Box™ is a suite of compact digitally controlled electronics precisely drive and stabilise a broad range of semiconductor lasers and associated photonics tools used in applications such as:

• Atomic Clocks
• BEC or Cold Atom Experiments
• Quantum Computing
• Gravity/Magnetic/Inertial Sensors

Based on the same high-performance D2 Series electronics that have established Vescent Photonics as the leader in laser control and stabilisation, the new ICE Box™ is fully compatible with all current Vescent D2 modules and can be used to drive and control a complete stabilised-laser system; overseeing frequency and temperature, offset lock DBR, DFB, or External Cavity lasers.

ICE Box can also control a tapered amplifier or a semiconductor optical amplifier (SOA) operating either as an amplifier or as a high-contrast non-mechanical shutter, and a liquid crystal shutter.

Each ICE Box control board is commanded via a USB Virtual Communication Port programmed in a language such as LabVIEW™, MATLAB™, Python, Java, et al. An intuitive GUI can also be used to issue commands and control the experiment or, if installed in the 'ICE Box' - a chassis that provides power and interface connections - a front-panel control is included.
