Abstract

A nonplanar, reentrant two-spherical-mirror ring cavity is demonstrated. It is compact and free of astigmatism. Unidirectional operation is achieved by use of reciprocal and nonreciprocal polarization rotators to differentiate round-trip loss. A single-frequency green laser is generated by intracavity frequency doubling. Amplitude noise as low as 0.25% is achieved.
