Molecular Beam Stabilized Argon Laser
A single frequency 5145Å argon ion laser has been stabilized to a hyperfine component in a molecular beam of I2. A long term stability of 1 × 10−13 was achieved for an integration time of 200 seconds. Reproducibility of the laser frequency was better than 7 × 10−12. An upper limit on intensity shift was 2 × 10−14 for a 1% change in laser intensity. Frequency shift caused by external magnetic fields was less than 2 × 10−13 per gauss.
