Abstract

It is shown how the transfer function from frequency noise to a Pound–Drever–Hall signal for a Fabry–Perot cavity can be used to accurately measure cavity length, cavity linewidth, mirror curvature, misalignments, laser beam shape mismatching with resonant beam shape, and cavity impedance mismatching with respect to vacuum.
