New online store to debut at Photonics West, Booth #804

Northvale, NJ — January 30, 2014 — Inrad Optics has launched a new online Pockels cells store. Customers with Q-switching, coupling and intensity modulation applications can now configure and buy a wide variety of KD*P and BBO Pockels Cells at

Pockels cells are used in applications that require fast switching of the polarization direction of a beam of light. Selection of the best crystalline material to use as the Pockels cell medium is determined by the wavelength of operation and performance requirements—such as damage threshold, average power handling ability, contrast ratio, extinction ratio and repetition rate.

A Pockels cells data sheet is available on the online store, and Inrad Optics’ technical staff is available to support online purchases by telephone on: 201-767-1910. For specifications, configuration and ordering, visit
