Paper Abstract

Lightwave Electronics manufactures diode-pumped single-frequency Nd:YAG lasers at 1064 nm and 1319 nm. Short term (msec) frequency fluctuations of these lasers are in the kHz range, while longer term (hour) fluctuations are many MHz. The rms intensity fluctuations of these lasers have been lowered to 0.0038% using a noise-reducing feedback circuit. A laser has been tested operationally from -54 degree(s)C to +54 degree(s)C. Lasers can be tuned from 1319.03 nm to 1319.44 nm or from 1064.43 nm to 1064.73 nm.
