A new electrodeless He-Ne laser using a plasma produced by an electromagnetic surface wave as the active medium is described. Gain measurements are reported as a function of the pump wave frequency from 200 to 915 MHz. The dependence of laser performance on the gas mixture and pressure is also presented.

    A phase measurement distance meter has been devised using a frequency-stabilized intermode optical beat generated from a two-mode He-Ne laser (14-cm-long cavity) and a conventional phase meter. The beat frequency (1096 MHz) is stabilized to within 1 kHz fluctuation by a feedback control system....

    A method is described for stabilization of a cw CO2 laser by locking it to a modulated external cavity which is locked to a HeNe reference laser. This avoids the necessity of modulating the CO2 laser. Stability values of a few tens of kHz on the microsecond and minute time scales have been achieved.
