No two applications are the same; no two customers are the same. We work closely with our customers' scientists and engineers to help them design state-of-the-art solutions.

At Gooch & Housego we carry out all areas of critical production in-house, from material selection to final assembly and testing. Our thin-film coating facilities produce superior quality optical surfaces with unsurpassed damage threshold.

At the cornerstone of our operations is a willingness to take on unusual or demanding projects and provide one-off bespoke solutions and prototyping. This is coupled with volume manufacturing capacity and highly developed quality assurance systems.  Rigorous inspection is enforced at all stages of manufacture to ensure that only the highest quality product is shipped.

Electro-Optics | Electro-Opitc Q-Switch | Pockel Cells

A Pockels cell alters the polarization state of light passing through it when an applied voltage induces birefringence changes in an electro-optic crystal such as KD*P and BBO. Frequently, Q-switches are employed in laser cavities for the purpose of shortening the output pulse, resulting in a light beam with enhanced peak intensity. When used in conjunction with polarizers, these cells can function as optical switches, or laser Q-switches.
