Mechanical Measurements


In order to build a measuring angular velocity transducer based on a laser with a small frequency error Δν=10−6–10−8 we must ensure: 1) a passive stabilization of the frequency to within Δν=10−8, which is achieved by the correct selection of the material and suitable construction of the resonator and of the discharge gap, and by controlling the thermal conditions; 2) an active stabilization of the frequency whose magnitude is governed by the range of Δν; obviously, the optimal variant is the stabilization of a ring laser by means of a highly stabilized (to within 10−11–10−14) linear laser; it is desirable to achieve self-stabilization without an external feedback, and the laser frequency should be tuned by altering the parameters of an auxiliary cell introduced into the ring resonator (or by altering the discharge current and pressure); a high degree of stabilization of the discharge (plasma) parameters of a He-Ne, laser is needed: this includes stabilization of the discharge current and pressure, establishment of a suitable distribution of the population inversion, selection of the discharge gap and the electrode geometry, and suitable conditions for the reduction of fluctuations in the discharge.
