Paper Abstract

A novel approach for narrow-line selection and wideband tuning of lasers using a self-selection interferometer is applied to obtain a high spectral purity emission. A comparison on the base of the background emission level is made between a proposed and a conventional cavity scheme with same selector. The results of theoretical investigation and experiments show a decreasing of the background emission in more than two orders of magnitude for the new realized scheme. Such kind of lasers are of special interest for application in Raman spectroscopy and isotope separation systems.
