Reference cavity ring down
To make the DEI pulser make a fast pulse on the EO shutter EOMs, we had to make sure:
1) the cable had a high voltage rated dielectric. cheap dielectrics show the 'corona'
effect, especially when there is a bend in the cable.
I'll check it with Bob.
2) the EO has to have a resistor on it to prevent ringing due to the impedance mismatch.
Did you use a shunt or series resistor ?
If shunt, I guess it has to have a huge heat sink.
Actually, DEI says the pulser does not require any external shunt/series resistors or impedance-matching network.
Looks like it is not true ...
3) We needed ~3.5 kV to get the EO shutter crystal to flip the light by 90 deg.
Yes, I adjusted the voltage to maximize the power change and it was about 3.5kV.
