Paper Abstract

Several technologies are available for interferometrically measuring laser wavelength to the precision of a Doppler width. These include instruments based on Fabry-Perot etalons, Fizeau wedges, Michelson interferometers, and other novel schemes. The current state of the art of these instruments is reviewed. Two new pulsed wavemeter designs are presented, the solid Fizeau wedge and the index mismatched interferometer. These instruments exhibit accuracies in the 106 range, and are very compact and inexpensive to fabricate.
