A tunable laser is a complex piece of technology that can initially be difficult to control. Pure Photonics makes it easy by making convenient control tools available to the users. This will speed-up the learning cycle and ensure that the customer can access the features with minimal effort. The following tools are available on this page:

Product Documentation

Firmware 

We are pleased to publish the latest Pure Photonics firmware for our different products. Note that these firmware versions only works on Pure Photonics products. Loading these on other devices may corrupt the firmware.

The below firmware should only be loaded on devices with serial numbers starting with PP70

Standard firmware

PPCL590 firmware (integration with gascell or external locking)

The below firmware should only be loaded on devices with serial numbers starting with CRTM

Software

The easiest way to access the special features of the Pure Photonics ITLA is to use the windows based GUIs, where the user can easily set the boundary conditions and monitor the performance.

We are happy to announce that the full suite of GUIs is available for free. This is intended as a demonstrator of capabilities, rather than a full software solution. We would anticipate that most users at some point want to integrate the product within their setup or product.

Release 3.2.2 (10 April 2024); fixed it.channel. Change history at CLI_VERSION_STATUS

Pure Photonics CLI 3.2.2

Refer to the manual for instructions: Manual Command Line Interface

Labview example and Labview Example 2 (currently Pure Photonics does not have a Labview license, hence maintenance of this code is not available. The code is pretty messy, but provides a good basis for building your own vi’s)

Python example for RS-232 communication

C example

Matlab example

This is an experimental first version of our new GUI design; It is initially focussed on our PPEB075/PP076 ICR control boards.
