Abstract

See full text

A laser system may include a laser source configured to generate a first laser light beam, a beam stabilizer downstream from the laser source and configured to stabilize the first laser light beam, and a beamsplitter downstream from the beam stabilizer and configured to split the stabilized first laser light beam into a plurality of second laser light beams. The system may further include a multi-channel acousto-optic modulator (AOM) including a common acousto-optic medium configured to receive the plurality of second laser light beams, and a respective phase array transducer comprising a plurality of electrodes coupled to the common acousto-optic medium for each of the second laser light beams. The system may further include a plurality of radio frequency (RF) drivers each configured to generate respective RF drive signals for the phased array transducer electrodes.
