Event Overview:

Characterizing and controlling optical systems with multiple standalone pieces of test equipment often presents difficult challenges that lead to lower stability, more noise, and increased system complexity. But with flexible, digitally implemented instruments such as lock-in amplifiers, frequency response analyzers, PID controllers, and more, optimizing optical control systems becomes easier, faster, and more cost-effective. During this special presentation, Jessica Patterson and Le Wang of Liquid Instruments will share next-generation strategies to characterize and control optical systems with flexible, reconfigurable, FPGA-based instrumentation.

Key Learning Objectives:

  • Learn how a single FPGA-based system replaces multiple fixed-function test instruments through partial FPGA reconfiguration.
  • Learn how to deploy multi-channel, multi-instrument capabilities in practical applications.
  • Learn advanced techniques with modern test equipment to achieve noise-optimized, streamlined measurements in optical systems.

Who Should Attend:

  • Optical engineers, optical scientists, physicists, physics professors, photonics researchers, postdoc researchers, Ph.D. researchers
