Abstract

The performance of intracavity birefringence sensing by use of a standing-wave laser is theoretically analyzed when the cavity involves internal reflection. On the three-mirror compound cavity model, the condition for converting an optical path length into a laser frequency or a retardation into an optical beat frequency with good linearity and little uncertainty is derived as a function of the cavity parameters and is numerically analyzed.
