Misalignment characteristics. (a) Insertion loss for a transparent element having an index of refraction of 1.5. (b) Variation in hold-off ratio for a KD*P Pockels cell. This measurement was performed outside the lasing cavity. The cell is placed between uncrossed polarizers and a 6-mm-diameter He–Ne gas laser beam is passed through the center of the cell and polarizers. The vertical axis shows ratio of transmitted He–Ne power with no voltage on the cell, divided by transmitted power with the half-wave retardation voltage applied to the cell.
