Paper Abstract

We report on the calibration results of the wavelength of the lasers used in commercial laser interferometers, including the vacuum wavelength deviation from its nominal value, the vacuum wavelength stability, the repeatability of stabilized wavelength, and the secular change of these properties, by analyzing the calibration data accumulated for more than two decades. We present an experimental method of calibrating the frequency of laser interferometers. We also propose a proper time interval and an appropriate uncertainty expression for the vacuum wavelength calibration of the laser interferometers.
