Paper Abstract

In this paper, we investigate the advantages of a tilt-tuneable, etalon-based argon laser which is remotely air cooled. Not only several (16) longitudinal modes can be tuned, but also individual wavelengths which lase in the argon's visible spectrum (457.9nm - 514.5nm). Power outputs in a given frequency range from 3 to 30 mW, C.W.. Due to the wide longitudinal mode spacing, stability is easily achieved and no mode hops occur after initial warm-up periods. Users requiring a long coherence length single longitudinal mode with a convenient 115 VAC argon laser source will benefit from this device.
