  3. Due to the fact that the index of refraction of the dye cell is ~1.5, the optimal position of the end mirror is 1.5 mm closer than it would be if the index of refraction of the dye cell were 1. The 1.5 mm here corresponds to the apparent foreshortening of the cavity by the 3-mm wide (2-mm dye path plus windows) dye cell.

Series of Fizeau interferograms showing smooth scanning of the tunable laser. The free spectral range of the interferometer is 0.5 cm−1 as indicated. The linewidth here is due entirely to the finite resolution of the interferometer. Note that as the end of the scan range is reached, one laser mode fades while an adjacent mode builds.
