An iodine stabilized dye laser system is described that provides traceable measurement of reference frequencies in the visible spectrum from 540 to 670 nm and in the near infrared at 1.15 μm. The system allows calibration of the widely used 633 nm, 612 nm, and 543 nm HeNe laser systems. Also, frequency measurements of a polarization stabilized 1153 nm HeNe laser have been performed via frequency doubling and comparison with the dye system operating on the corresponding 576 nm lines. Studies of the shift sensitivities of the system at various wavelengths of interest are described for variation of iodine cell pressure, laser modulation amplitude, and optical saturation power. The dye system was also stabilized to hyperfine components associated with the 6-3 P(33) iodine transition and compared with a 633 nm iodine stabilized HeNe standard.
