External-cavity birefringence feedback effects of microchip Nd:YAG laser and its application in angle measurement

【摘要】:External-cavity birefringence feedback effects of the microchip Nd:YAG laser are presented.When a birefringence element is placed in the external feedback cavity of the laser,two orthogonally polarized laser beams with a phase difference are output.The phase difference is twice as large as the phase retardation in the external cavity along the two orthogonal directions.The variable extra-cavity birefringence,caused by rotation of the external-cavity birefringence element,results in tunable phase difference between the two orthogonally polarized beams.This means that the roll angle information has been translated to phase difference of two output laser beams.A theoretical analysis based on the Fabry-Perot cavity equivalent model and refractive index ellipsoid is presented,which is in good agreement with the experimental results.This phenomenon has potential applications for roll angle measurement.
