Title: Using two-beam interference method for measuring wavelength of tunable pulse lasers

Abstract

Two beam interference is used to measure pulsed laser wave length. The experimental facility is based on a scanning Michelson interferometer that contains a beam splitter made from a BaF2 crystal with titanium layer, stationary and movable flat mirrors and a reference laser. In the experiment, the emission from a semiconductor injection laser was coupled through a collimator objective lens into the interferometer. At the output of the interferometer was a Ge(Hg) photocell. A wide band preamplifier matched the photocell to the external amplifier. The amplified signal was displayed on a CRT scope. The results of the experiment demonstrate the feasibility of measuring wavelength of frequency tunable lasers by the two beam interference method with a scanning Michelson interferometer and dynamic band counting.
