    Lasers can be made to oscillate simultaneously at two frequencies by means of anisotropic or nonreciprocal resonator elements. A technique is described for stabilizing the resulting frequency separation by locking it to an external frequency source. The stabilized separation should be useful in optical heterodyne applications. View full abstract»

    Observation of single-wavelength operation in a TEM00mode laser at the 80-W level without the use of intracavity dispersive elements is reported. The output wavelength remains at the P(20) line irrespective of cavity length changes, gas mixture, and excitation level for cavity lengths of about 4 m or longer. View full abstract»

    It is shown that internal damage in LiNbO3and KDP occurs at the same or lower levels of irradiation than surface damage. This is found in crystals used as frequency doublers and Pockels cells as well as in samples having different orientations. It is recommended, therefore, that samples that have suffered surface damage be thoroughly inspected internally before being repolished and reus... View full abstract»

    The theory of optical parametric oscillation internal to the laser cavity is extended to include the dynamics of the population inversion of the laser medium, thus generalizing it to include all laser-oscillator systems. The equations of motion of the oscillator-laser system are solved by digital computer for the case of a Q -switched Nd:YAG laser with a LiNbO View full abstract»

    A technique is described for operating a prism to dielectric thin-film waveguide system over a wide frequency band from a conventional broad-band source of the dye-laser type. The continuous coupling bandwidth can extend, typically, over a frequency range of twice to three times the center frequency. The experimental tolerances have been established and are shown to be within the capability of pre... View full abstract»

    A detailed analysis is presented of the absorption of energy from a thin-film dielectric waveguide by an absorbing medium that is brought into contact with one wall of the dielectric guide. It is shown that the exponential decay constant for the mode of the guide so obtained can closely approach that obtained for the free wave in the absorbing medium alone. The dependence of the attenuation on the... View full abstract»

    The small-signal single-pass gain for 24 individual CO laser lines has been measured for a flowing CO-air-He laser. The vibrational-rotational P(J)_{\upsilon ,\upsilon '} lines considered were for rotational transitions from J = 10 to 16 and upper vibrational levels from \upsilon = 7 View full abstract»

    The most general expression for the half-wave voltage of a LiNbO3transverse light modulator has been studied. As a result, a novel cut with a minimum half-wave voltage of 1440 V for amplitude modulation is proposed. A preliminary experimental verification confirms the promising theoretical results.
