Paper Abstract

A conventional intra-cavity Pockels cell was used to achieve tunable operation of a Rh 6G dye laser. Wavelength tuning over a broad spectral band (500 PO with driving voltages of some hundreds volts was achieved. This system is suitable for simulating broadband illumination in optical processors working with spatially coherent but temporally incoherent sources. Applications dealing with the measurement of optical path-differences through the channelled spectrum technique, surface testing by chromatic speckle phenomenon and optical transmission by spectral modulation of light are reported.
