Paper Abstract

A tunable, single-frequency, frequency-stabilized, diode- pumped Tm,Ho:YLF laser is described. The laser, which demonstrates the function of a local-oscillator for coherent Doppler lidar in space, has continuous frequency tunability of more than 8 GHz. Active frequency stabilization is achieved by feedback electronics which allow for controlled tuning capability. Output power of more than 20 mW in single-transverse and -longitudinal mode operation with a short term frequency jitter of less than 100 kHz/ms is obtained.
