An analysis is made of the spectrum of a laser beam modulated by the electrooptic doppler shift for two important cases: where the applied electric field is a sawtooth function and where it is a triangular function. The spectra reduce to simple forms when the maximum frequency shift is an integral multiple of the modulation frequency.
