Paper Abstract

Passive ring laser resonator of square size with a side 3.1 m is created in Sternberg State Astronomical Institute for the determination of the Earth angular rate. This work deals with the construction of resonator and mode-matching system, estimation of the resonator parameters, influence of the temperature variations on the mode structure, control of the resonator perimeter, influence of the nonplanarity and light polarization on the quality factor and, thus, on the accuracy of the Earth rotation measurements.
