Abstract

We report birefringent tuning using single and multiple magnesium fluoride (MgF2) Brewster tuning plates in a mode-locked pumped continuous-wave Ce:LiCAF laser. Depending on the thickness of the MgF2 plates used, continuous tuning over a range of up to 13 nm from 284.5 to 297.5 nm with a full width at half-maximum linewidth of 14 pm (50 GHz) was achieved. By combining MgF2 plates with etalons, the linewidth of the laser was narrowed down to 0.75 pm (2.7 GHz). This generated narrowband output is suitable for many applications in spectroscopy, cold-atom manipulation, and sensing.
