Abstract

A wavelength-stablized light source is proposed using an air-gap etalon for distance measurements. The system does not use an electric reference and complex circuits such as a divider to stabilize the laser-diode wavelength. The wavelength stability is σ≤ 4.7 × 10 -12 for 0.1 s ≤τ≤ 100 s. Using this system, the spectral linewidth is reduced to 600 kHz (FWHM).
