Abstract:

This report results from a contract tasking Lebedev Physics Institute as follows The contractor will investigate and develop a diode-pumped color-center laser and methane cell for use in developing an optical frequency standard at 3.3 microns. Tasks to be include under this project are 1 development and investigation of a cw, tunable, color-center laser operating in the 3.0 to 3.3 micron that is pumped by a laser diode array, 2 establishment of stable operation of two mode operation of the color-center laser, and 3 investigation of the saturated-dispersion resonances on different methane line of the R-branch using the beat frequency between the two modes.
