Abstract

A method for the active feedback reduction of optical instrumental intensity asymmetries is presented. It is based on the fast chopping of two spatially separated beams of light with orthogonal linear polarizations that are recombined and passed through a quarter-wave plate to yield a single beam with rapidly flipping helicity. Active electro-optic feedback has been successfully employed to maintain this asymmetry below 105.

Figures (7)

Fig. 1
Fig. 1

Schematic of the optical system. Light from the laser is separated into its constituent polarizations (arrows) and recombined in space, but not in time, with the aid of a chopper. The intensity of each polarization is measured with diode 1 (using the He–Ne signal from diode 2 as a reference) and the LCR is adjusted to minimize the intensity asymmetry. Helicity is flipped by the passage of the temporally alternating linear polarization through a fixed quarter-wave plate.
