Abstract

We studied the optical feedback characteristics of a single-mode He-Ne laser with a quartz crystal plate in the external cavity. The fringe frequency of the laser system can be doubled when the quartz crystal plate is positioned at a certain angle between the crystalline axis and the beam in the crystal plate. Theoretical analysis shows that the birefringent effect of the quartz crystal plate and the laser beam’s second pass through the external cavity result in this phenomenon. The experimental results are in good agreement with the theoretical analysis. A quartz crystal plate can double the resolution of a self-mixing sensing system.
