Paper Abstract

In several applications such as optical gyroscopes, gravitational wave detection, and vibrometry, the precision sensing of the effective length of the optical cavity is key. In this work we show how an active single mode laser with a negatively dispersive medium can enhance the sensitivity of measuring the alteration of the length of the cavity in the practical case of a warm medium. We also state how a Rubidium based Diode Pump Alkali Laser satisfies the requirements of the proposed model.
