Product Introduction


The CoSy system is a versatile tool for Doppler-free absorption saturation spectroscopy. This permits a generation of extremely precise defined wavelength standards, which can be used for highly precise stabilization of tunable lasers.

• The CoSy head contains the setup for the Doppler-free saturation spectroscopy. It is available with Cesium-, Rubidium- or Potassium cells (other cells on request) 

• The CoSy head is controlled by the power supply and control electronics CoSyControl.

Usually Doppler-free absorption saturation spectroscopy is achieved by using a relatively complex opto-mechanical setup. This setup has been integrated in the described small compact unit, together with the electronics needed for evaluation of the detected beams.
