Paper Abstract

A beat-note stability of 500 Hz over 1 second has been observed between two free-running optically pumped NH3 lasers. The 12 μm laser frequency is strongly isolated from cavity-mirror motion, and is relatively insensitive to perturbations in the pump lasers. The NH3 lasers have been used to observe Lamb-dips in external NH3 cells.
