Title: ATHERMAL POCKELS CELL
Abstract:
The invention relates to a Pockels cell (100) that comprises two electro-optic crystals (10a, 10b) similarly orientated in thermal compensation on a horizontal metal base (12) common to the two crystals, and a carrier structure (13). A thermally conductive element is included between the base (12) and the carrier structure (13), symmetrically configured with respect to a vertical plane (160) passing between the two crystals, in order to symmetrically distribute, to the base (12), a heat flow (150) generated in the carrier structure (13) in an asymmetric manner with respect to the vertical plane (160).
