Paper Abstract

A comprehensive diagnostic instrumentation suite was designed and successfully utilized to characterize the performance parameters from two coupled lasers. The characterization included such standard diagnostic measurements as: absolute and RMS power, polarization, jitter, near-field and far-field irradiance profiles, near-field phase, spectral content, and beam quality. Coupling strength between the two lasers was also measured as well as their mutual coherence, locking range, and the heterodyne frequencies between axial modes in the resonator.
