Optical Timing Concept

Our concept for a high-precision optical timing distribution system consists of a low-noise master clock which is sent over stabilized optical fiber links to remote clients such as a x-ray user s laser in a hutch, the controls for the individual linac RF sources, or the FEL seed laser. The performance of the stabilized link maintains the relative synchronization of these components.
