Paper Abstract

Acousto-optic mode-locking in an argon-ion laser was investigated in detail. Measurement of the discharge current is shown to be an accurate means of locating the optimum cavity length. The absolute cavity mismatch between the optimum length and that corresponding to c/4υRF was determined by direct measurement and by using a cw dye laser as an active interferometer.
