Acousto Optic Q-Switches

Key Features

  • High optical damage threshold
  • High RF power handling
  • High diffraction efficiency
  • Custom configurations available


A water-cooled acousto optic q-switch for use in high power Nd:YAG lasers systems.

Combining top grade fused silica with high quality optical finishing and in-house anti-reflection coatings, this q-switch exhibits very low insertion loss and high damage threshold. Its design characteristics and repeatable manufacturing process enable RF powers of up to 100W.

Standard options include a choice of RF frequencies (24 to 68MHz), active apertures (1.0 - 8.0mm), acoustic modes (compressional for linear polarisation, shear for unpolarised) and water connectors. Customised housings are available for OEMs.


  • Material processing (e.g. laser marking, engraving, cutting drilling)
  • Medical (surgery)
  • Lithography
