We demonstrated that an iodine stabilized distributed Bragg reflector (DBR) diode based laser system lasing at a wavelength in close proximity to λ=633 nm could be used as an alternative laser source to the helium-neon lasers in both scientific and industrial metrology. This yields additional advantages besides the optical frequency stability and coherence: inherent traceability, wider optical frequency tuning range, higher output power and high frequency modulation capability. We…
