Abstract

A number of pulsed laser wavemeters1,2,3,4,5 and spectrum analyzers6,7 have been reported. Several are available commercially8,9,10. No one of these, however, provides both wavelength and spectral information to accuracy consistent with the performance of narrow-band tunable solid state lasers. In designing the instrument described here, we attempted to select the best combination of demonstrated techniques and to incorporated them into a stable, modular unit that could be produced at reasonable cost. The design was optimized for use with lasers having good spatial mode quality, such as is typical of laser-pumped solid state lasers. A further consideration was that prototype be compact, rugged and energy efficient so as to be a good candidate for flight and space qualification as an adjunct to diode-pumped, allsolid-state systems.
