(a) Passive transmittance (top) and reflectance (bottom) of one resonance of active interferometer operating at 1.15 μ (He–Ne laser line) with mirror reflectance of 0.94. (b) Active transmittance and reflectance with single-pass gain set below oscillation condition. Vertical oscilloscope sensitivity for both traces in (b) is 1/68 that in (a). The horizontal frequency scale for all traces is 5.61 (Mc/sec) cm−1.
