Paper Abstract

The results of investigation of the temperature effect on the intermode beat frequency for a two-frequency He-Ne laser with tree-mirror cavity are presented. The laser cavity was made as a monoblock unit of the material, which coefficient of thermal expansion is less than 2 X 10-7 K-1. The mirrors was mounted by optical contact technique. The beat frequency stabilization is performed by using the temperature dependence for linear phase anisotropy of the tilted mirror. The laser wavelength is 633 nm. The light angle on the tilted mirror is 45 degrees. At the stabilized regime the beat frequency drift does not exceed +/- 100 Hz during 15 min. The typical transition time value was 50 - 250 s.
