Ice Bloc QCLD and QCLAD are precision current sources and temperature controllers for building QCL-based photonic systems in research, experimental and production applications.
Driving the latest generation of low current, high compliance voltage quantum cascade lasers, they provide market-leading ultra-low output noise performance with high precision and high resolution current set points. The integrated temperature controller can control a TEC with user-programmable output current, current polarity, voltage limits, PID control parameters and ramp time settings. The device has been designed with various mechanisms to protect the laser, and its compact form factor with customisable software interface allows easy integration into experiments or OEM setups.
Ice Bloc QCLAD extends the functionality of Ice Bloc QCLD with actuator driving electronics to control external stepper and piezo motors for QCL laser tuning.
