  • All AOM models are offered with PM fiber (compatible with similar non-PM fiber)
  • 3 available compatible RF driver models with digital and/or analog inputs
  • Maximum input power up to 5 watts (CW)
  • Low insertion loss down to 1.2 dB
  • High speed pulsing down to 10 nsec rise/fall time
  • Extinction ratio up to 50 dB
  • Very low noise and high stability


These fiber coupled acousto-optic modulators (AOM) are designed to offer an optimal solution for amplitude modulation of laser light in a single mode optical fiber. They are offered at 1030/1064 or 1550 nm.  These AOM’s provide a solution which is easy to implement and offers direct control of the timing, intensity, and temporal shape of the laser output down to a few nanoseconds. Fiber coupled AOMs (Acousto-Optic Modulators) require an RF driver. AeroDIODE offers a range of RF drivers configured for either digital input (TTL) or analog input configurations. Our selection of RF drivers is shown in the product section below.  Additionally, the AeroDIODE TOMBAK synchronization tool is offered for complex synchronization applications such as pulse-picking mode locked lasers.
