Paper Abstract

High accuracy interferometric systems sensing slowly varying measurands place great demands on the frequency stability of the optical source used. In this paper, we determine the stability requirements of interferometric systems employing various signal processing techniques, and describe investigations into methods for locking the laser diode to a unique frequency by means of a monochromator, a diffraction grating, an interference filter and an atomic transition in a hollow cathode lamp.
