Abstract:

A CO2 waveguide laser was operated with an intracavity electro-optic polarization modulator. Coupling modulation at 48 and 120 MHz was observed which represents a significant step towards the contract goal to investigate the feasibility of linear ramp frequency modulation 500 MHz in 300 microsec. of a stable CO2 oscillator. This master oscillator is of interest for a high resolution optical radar application.
