Frequency difference stabilization in dual-frequency laser by stress-induced birefringence closed-loop control.

Abstract

The frequency difference of dual-frequency lasers is increasingly becoming an area of focus in research. The stabilization of beat frequency is of significance in fields such as synthetic wavelength and shows great potential in precise measurement. In this paper, a novel device based on stress-induced birefringence closed-loop control is proposed. Experiments are carried out on a dual-frequency He-Ne Zeeman-birefringence laser with the output mirror sealed in the opposite direction. The results show that the device is capable of controlling the frequency difference variation in 1.3%, in a convenient and highly cost-effective way, and it can increase the quantity of frequency difference, which is crucial to the application of precise measurement through dual-frequency lasers.
