Optical Pulse Shaper & Laser Front End


# #


iXblue offers the most comprehensive portfolio of versatile sub-nanosecond laser pulse generation transmitter based on unparalleled LiNbO3 modulator design.

These turn-key ModBoxes combine the best available optoelectronics components to provide state of the art optical pulse performances.

These ModBoxes are available over a wide wavelength range and can be tailored to specific applications:

  • ModBox-PG: to generate square optical pulses
  • ModBox-PS: to generate arbitrary shaped optical pulses
  • ModBox-FE: to generate energetic arbitrary shaped pulses
  • ModBox-SB: to suppress the Stimulated Brillouin Scattering
  • ModBox-PP: to pulse pick
  • ModBox-DER: to measure Very High Extinction Ratios
  • ModBox-CBC: to combine several beams with individual phase adjustments

A set of several Standards ModBox units is already available, please refer to the data-sheet ModBox collection below. If your ModBox product does not exist, a customized and dedicated solution can be built for you.

iXblue has accumulated a strong experience in such systems and successfully installed them in many laboratories over the world. To warrant the success of your project in a timely manner, iXblue proposes system demonstration as well as on-site installation with training of local staff. Please contact us to learn more about these services.
