With simple optical geometries a separate resonant Fabry-Perot cavity can serve as an optical feedback element that forces a semiconductor laser automatically to lock its frequency optically to the cavity resonance. This method is used to stabilize laser frequencies and reduce linewidths by a factor of 1000 from 20 MHz to approximately 20 kHz.

For technical reference, the lasers used were Hitachi HLP 1400’s. This mention does not constitute an endorsement, and we expect that other lasers will also be suitable
