Through the New Focus product line, the LB1005 will be available immediately to the scientific laser community, adding to the company's established line of tunable and single- frequency lasers.

The LB1005 high-speed servo controller is a one-box solution that allows for highly stable frequency and intensity locks on many types of lasers as well as synchronization of pairs of lasers. It is designed for flexibility, offering independent control of the P-I corner frequency, overall servo gain, and low-frequency gain limit. The all-analog design is extremely quiet and extremely high bandwidth. The controller is suited to a variety of applications, including atom/ion trapping, Bose-Einstein condensation, frequency metrology, quantum optics, and the high-speed stabilization, synchronization, and control of lasers.

The LB1005 will be on display at the New Focus booth (#1821) at the CLEO exhibition, taking place this week at the San Jose Convention Center, 6-8 May. For more information, visit www.bookham.com.
