Abstract

We present experimental results demonstrating controllable dispersion in a ring laser by monitoring the lasing-frequency response to cavity-length variations. Pumping on an N-type level configuration in Rb87, we tailor the intra-cavity dispersion slope by varying experimental parameters, such as pump-laser frequency, atomic density, and pump power. As a result, we can tune the pulling factor, i.e., the ratio of the laser frequency shift to the empty cavity frequency shift, of our laser by more than an order of magnitude.
