A model external-cavity system is investigated to describe the tuning characteristics appropriate to the various experimental procedures used in the operation of the spin-flip Raman laser. In particular a calculation is made of the amount by which internal subcavities pull the oscillation frequency away from the Raman frequency under the servocontrolled conditions used to achieve continuous tuning.
