Thorlabs' Liquid Crystal Noise Eaters / Laser Amplitude Stabilizers are precision instruments for stabilizing, modulating, and attenuating the power of linearly polarized light. These closed-loop systems are designed for use with light in the 425 - 650 nm (NEL01), 475 - 650 nm (NEL02), 650 - 1050 nm (NEL03), or 1050 - 1620 nm (NEL04) wavelength range. We offer noise eater models for low (<60 mW) or high (<1.65 W) power use, all with external modulation inputs. See the Specs tab for details.

Noise Reduction
Utilizing a liquid crystal amplitude modulator, combined with an internal photodiode for power measurement and a feedback control circuit, these noise eaters can eliminate intensity noise in linearly polarized light, achieving amplitude stabilization of within 0.05% of a selected output power. The input power can be set to one of several ranges using the switches on the top of the unit, which permit the noise eater to remove noise without unnecessarily attenuating the signal power. The potentiometer is then adjusted to select the output power (see the Operation tab for more information). Long-term performance and frequency characterization for each noise eater model are shown on the Performance tab.

Power Attenuation and Modulation
These noise eaters are also capable of continuously attenuating and modulating the laser output using the liquid crystal retarder and integrated polarizer. Unlike most attenuators available, Noise Eaters attenuate the laser power rapidly without the use of any mechanical components. The noise eater's attenuation capabilities can be controlled via the onboard potentiometer or electrical modulation input.

Thorlabs' Noise Eaters are post mountable in two orientations via 8-32 (M4) tapped holes. They also feature 4-40 tapped holes on the front and back for 30 mm Cage System compatibility and an SM1-threaded (1.035"-40) rear aperture for Ø1" Lens Tube compatibility.

  • RMS value over 8 hours.
  • The maximum of the frequency range is defined as the point where 0 dB noise attenuation is obtained. These noise eaters are designed to operate down to DC frequency. However, due to external factors (e.g. ambient temperature, vibration, spatial and/or polarization stability of the light source), the noise attenuation factor below 10 Hz is difficult to measure and quantify. Therefore our specifications are guaranteed at 10 Hz and above.
  • Noise attenuation factor is the ratio of noise amplitude before and after the noise eater. It was tested at 3 mW input power with a noise amplitude of 5% of the input power level. The nominal noise attenuation frequency range can reach up to 2.5 kHz, depending on the model. See detailed noise attenuation plots on the Performance tab for more information. The noise eater might not be able to completely eliminate high frequency noise in certain cases, such as a laser source that contains spikes or step-like output power fluctuations.
  • This is the range of output power adjustment where the noise attenuation factor is guaranteed for a given input power level. If the output power is further reduced, the noise eater might not be able to completely reduce the noise in the signal. This specification does not include losses due to absorption.
  • The maximum input power density and laser damage threshold are wavelength-independent. Additionally, the absolute maximum input power varies with wavelength; see the Operation tab for details.
  • Specified for a 1/e2 beam diameter.
  • Extinction ratio is the ratio of the signal power at minimum attenuation to the signal power at full attenuation, regardless of the effective noise attenuation factor, when using the SMC modulation input.
  • Rise time is measured on the rising edge of the output intensity from 10% to 90% of full output power.

Noise Eater Performance Graphs

In the graphs below, noise attenuation was measured as one of three parameters was varied: input power level, input signal modulation (noise) amplitude, and output signal attenuation. The graphs show that the noise eaters provide consistent performance regardless of changes in these parameters.

Graph Definitions

Noise Attenuation at Various Input Power Levels
Noise attenuation factor is the ratio of noise amplitude before and after the noise eater. In these graphs, the attenuation factor was measured for several different input power levels, with a fixed signal modulation depth (noise amplitude). The graphs below show that the noise eaters provide consistent performance regardless of input power level.

Noise Attenuation at Various Input Signal Modulations
In these graphs, the input signal was modulated with a sine wave to simulate noise. The attenuation factor was measured at a variety of modulation depths (noise amplitudes). The graphs below show that the noise eater provides consistent performance even at large noise levels.

Noise Attenuation at Various Output Signal Power Levels
Since the noise eater uses a liquid crystal modulator as the optical control element, the noise attenuation is achieved by attenuating the laser beam when noise appears. Our noise eaters are carefully designed to optimize the noise attenuation performance without needing to severely attenuate the signal. These graphs demonstrate that the specified noise attenuation can be reached with a cost of only 5% - 10% overall attenuation of the output power, and further increases in attenuation does not significantly improve the noise attenuation.

Modulation Performance
Noise eaters with a modulation input can also be used as EO modulators. In these graphs, a sine wave with a 2.5 V amplitude and an increasing frequency was used to modulate a noiseless input beam. The graphs show that the maximum modulation depth decreases with increasing modulation frequency. Further testing has demonstrated that the modulation performance is consistent for a given noise eater model, regardless of the laser beam's input power.

Noise Eater Operation

Thorlabs' Liquid Crystal Noise Eater is a precision instrument for stabilizing, attenuating, and modulating laser power. The noise eater consists of a variable attenuator (liquid crystal wave plate and polarizer), a calibrated beamsplitter, and a servo controller to control the modulator, as depicted in the block diagram to the right.

Linearly polarized light is input into the liquid crystal retarder, which, together with the output polarizer, acts as a variable retarder. A beamsplitter then sends a small part of the beam to a feedback loop consisting of a photodiode and control servo. The servo compares the optical signal to a preset signal level and applies the appropriate adjustment voltage until the optical signal reaches the desired level.

The noise eater can also be used as a variable attenuator, even without the presence of noise. By adjusting the resistance of the potentiometer, the user can set the desired output power level.

Noise Eater Mounting Options
Click to Enlarge

The Noise Eater can be post mounted in two different orientations to match the input light's direction of polarization. A CRM1(/M) Cage Rotation Mount and four 30 mm Cage Rods can mount a half-wave plate for fine tuning the polarization alignment.

Mounting and Alignment

The noise eater is designed to work with linearly polarized input light aligned with the direction of the arrow engraved on the noise eater near the input aperture. Linearly polarized light and proper alignment of the direction of polarization are important for achieving the best results from the noise eater.

In order to minimize optical losses, the noise eater does not have an input polarizer. If the incident light is not linearly polarized, a linear polarizer must be placed before the noise eater to polarize the incident light.

If the incident light is linearly polarized but is not aligned exactly vertically or horizontally, a half-wave plate can be used before the noise eater to rotate the polarization axis. As shown in the photo to the right, the noise eater's cage mount can be used along with a CRM1 cage rotation mount to rotate the half-wave plate, thus aligning the polarization axis with the noise eater.

For post mounting, the noise eater is equipped with two 8-32 (M4) threaded holes. These holes are offset by 90° so that light with a vertical or horizontal polarization axis can be aligned with the noise eater. The four 4-40 holes on the front of the noise eater can also be used to mount the noise eater in either a horizontal or vertical orientation using the Thorlabs 30 mm Cage System.

For best performance of the noise eater, it is recommended that the beam be well centered within the input aperture. Due to the optical path inside the noise eater, the output beam will be shifted down by 1.0 mm if the noise eater is mounted vertically, as shown in the left view in the figure to the right. Similarly, the output beam will be shifted sideways by 1.0 mm if the noise eater is mounted horizontally, as shown in the right view in the figure to the right.

Noise Eater SMC Modulation Input Jack

SMC Modulation Input Jack

Modulation

There is an SMC interface at the right side of the noise eater, which can be used to modulate the attenuation of the noise eater. The modulation input has a 10 kΩ input impedance. A voltage ranging from 0 to 2.5 V can be input to modulate the output power from 0 to full output. Before modulating the output power, first turn the output power level knob clockwise to the end of its travel (minimum output power setting).

Top View Showing Power Range Adjustment Switches

Power Range Adjustment

The selection switch(es) at the top of the noise eater are used to select the input power range. The power selector should be set to the lowest value that is still higher than the actual power of the laser. For example, if the NEL01 is being used with a beam power of 8 mW at 635 nm, the selector should be set to position 3, which represents 10 mW. For specifications, refer to the Max Power tables below.

The NEL02, NEL03, and NEL04 noise eaters have two selection switches at the top of the case, which are used to select the input power range. When the low/high power switch is set to "LOW", the input power range can be set to one of the lower set of powers; when the status switch set to "HIGH", the input power range can be set to one of the higher set of powers. For specifics, refer to the Max Power tables below. Note that the NEL01 noise eater has only one selection switch.

The NEL01, NEL02, and NEL03 noise eaters use a Silicon detector as part of the feedback loop, while the NEL04 noise eater uses a Germanium detector. The responsivity of the detectors is different for different wavelengths, and so the power settings on the selector only correspond to the design wavelength of the detector (635 nm for NEL01 and NEL02, 780 nm for NEL03, 1550 nm for the NEL04). The power range at a given wavelength is inversely proportional to the responsivity (a higher responsivity value will result in a lower power range value). The graph to the right shows the relative responsivity of both detectors at a range of wavelengths. The tables below show a rough estimate of the power settings at various wavelengths for each model.

The noise eater operates by varying how much of the signal is attenuated in order to reach the target output power and attenuate the noise. Since the noise eater can attenuate the signal but not amplify it, the clean output beam can only have a power as high as the minimum power level of the noisy signal. In practice, to remove all noise without unnecessarily attenuating the signal power, the output power level should be set to slightly lower than the minimum power of the noisy signal. See the operating manual for more information.

Max Powers at Various Wavelengths

The tables below list the maximum input powers for each noise eater, specified for a variety of input wavelengths and switch settings. Please note that these maximum power levels correspond to the feedback electronics of the noise eater, and in some cases, the actual maximum input power is instead limited by the damage threshold of the noise eater. For the high power noise eaters (NEL02, NEL03, and NEL04), this damage threshold is 8 W/cm2, which corresponds to a maximum input power of 1 W if the input power is distributed evenly across the Ø4 mm clear aperture. For the low power noise eater (NEL01), the damage threshold is 0.8 W/cm2, which corresponds to a maximum input power of 100 mW if the input power is again distributed evenly across the Ø4 mm clear aperture.

Is it possible to use the modulation input of these noise eaters to control the DC power level? It would be useful to have electronic control of the power transmitted by the noise eater.
nbayconich  (posted 2018-11-15 10:20:15.0)
Thank you for contacting Thorlabs. Yes it is possible to modulate the input of the noise eaters in order to control the DC power level using the SMC interface, The noise eater can also be used as a variable attenuator, even without the presence of noise. A voltage ranging from 0 to 2.5 V can be input to modulate the output power as needed. Please note that the output power cannot be modulated higher than the initial input power. The noise eater operates by varying how much of the signal is attenuated in order to reach the target output power and attenuate the noise. Since the noise eater can attenuate the signal but not amplify it, the clean output beam can only have a power as high as the minimum power level of the noisy signal.

1. Is it possible to use the noise eater for 400kHz - 80Mhz repetition rates of fs lasers? I need to stabilize the laser power for long durations (up to a few days), I don't need to stabilize the pulse-to-pulse stability. 2. How does the EO version work? Is the active element an electrooptical crystal or is it still liquid crystal based?
besembeson  (posted 2015-10-13 08:33:51.0)
Response from Bweh at Thorlabs USA: These are ideal for CW lasers so it should be suitable at the higher repetition rates (close to 80MHz) but may not be suitable at the lower repetition rates. Also ensure the peak powers are within the limits we specify. The EO version has the same configuration, using a liquid crystal retarder and polarizer. We use the term EO since these have a modulation input that allows system to act as an optical switch.

What is the time response of the photodiode + amplifier ? Would the LCC3112H/M be usable on a 100 kHz laser at 1030 nm ? Thanks in advance for your answer. Nicolas
besembeson  (posted 2015-09-21 09:21:27.0)
Response from Bweh at Thorlabs USA: The response time for the photodiode and amplifier is about 0.35us. The attenuation will be worse than specified so it may not be suitable. In certain cases such as lasers having spikes or step-like output power fluctuations the device may not be able to completely eliminate high frequency noise.

Used LCC3112H on a Ti:Sa laser with 80MHz repetition rate, 800nm. Added noise eater to a beam path with 155mW max power output after the unit, tune to have 145mW output. Tested with PM100 for 10+ hours. See worse power stability with the noise eater. 10 hour drift on the order of ~3%. Would appreciate comments/suggestions.

besembeson  (posted 2014-08-21 02:54:28.0)
Response from Bweh at Thorlabs USA: The damage threshold is 10MW/cm^2 peak power and 8W/cm^2 for CW. You can compare your power density to these values. Regarding the dispersion, I will followup with you by email to determine which unit you are interested in, so that I can provide you information about the thickness and dispersion.
emeyersc  (posted 2013-11-08 10:13:44.257)
Can the IR noise eater handle picosecond pulses from an OPO and still stabilize? What would be the damage threshold in this case (specifically, 1620 nm, 80 MHz, 3 ps)?
jlow  (posted 2013-11-12 10:34:37.0)
Response from Jeremy at Thorlabs: Since 80MHz is much higher than the bandwidth of the noise eater (2.5kHz), the LCC3113 should still stabilize. The damage threshold is around 10MW/cm^2 peak power and 8W/cm^2 for CW.
tcohen  (posted 2012-11-12 13:05:00.0)
Response from Tim at Thorlabs to Gediminas: Thank you for contacting us! A 650-1100nm edition of our noise eater is currently in the works and will be released shortly. For your review, we will contact you with more information on this new product.

tcohen  (posted 2012-11-07 21:29:00.0)
Response from Tim at Thorlabs: This is correct. The noise attenuation falls off as frequency increases in the target bandwidth to 2.5kHz for this LC design. If you would be interested in a high bandwidth design we would love to discuss this with you as a possible future customer inspired product.
mlau  (posted 2012-10-31 21:15:06.233)
If I'm reading the noise eater specs correctly, the attentuation falls with high frequency? Is that right?
tcohen  (posted 2012-07-09 13:06:00.0)
Response from Tim at Thorlabs: The Noise Eater will be released soon. We should be able to assemble a 100mW version but the max beam diameter for this version is 4mm.
john.burke  (posted 2012-07-05 18:41:06.0)
When will this be available? Is there any chance I could get a custom one with a larger aperature and power handling? I need about 100 mW so an aperature twice radius should be helpful. I could be willing to sacrifice bandwidth for long term stability and power handling. Thanks!
