We are currently working on a device that drives and acquires data from a pulse autocorrelator which is an optical instrument used to measure the pulsewidth of our femtosecond lasers. This device acquires a photodiode output with an ADC and drives a linear galvo via a DAC. It communicates with a PC via USB.
The device was designed by Thomas Dimiduk who has also written the communications and data processing software. Paul is working on the user interface, and I helped out with the PCB design and layout.
