Laser Lock Box overview

One of twelve instruments included with every Moku:Lab

Features


  • Block diagram view of the signal processing chain
  • Demodulate signals with internal or external local oscillators
  • Scan resonances with sawtooth or triangle waveforms
  • Observe signals at different locations in the signal processing chain using an integrated oscilloscope
  • Quickly lock to any zero-crossing in the error signal using the ‘Tap-to-Lock’ feature
  • Low-pass filter demodulated signals with up to fourth order infinite-impulse response filters
  • Individually configure high- and low-bandwidth PID controllers for fast and slow feedback
  • Observe signals with respect to the scanning voltage using the ‘Scope-Scan Lock’ feature

Specifications


  • Local oscillator frequency: 1 mHz to 200 MHz (3.55 µHz resolution)
  • Scan waveforms: positive sawtooth, negative sawtooth, triangle
  • Scan frequency: 1 mHz to 1 MHz
  • Low-pass filter corner frequency: 1 kHz to 14 MHz
  • 6 dB / 12 dB per octave filter roll-off
  • Low-pass filter types: Butterworth, Chebyshev, Inverse Chebyshev, Elliptic, Gaussian, Bessel, Legendre
  • AC / DC coupling
  • 50 Ω / 1 MΩ input impedance
