Based on total reflection principle, a compact liquid-refractive index measuring equipment was designed and fabricated, in which a diode laser was used as light source and a charge-coupled device (CCD) as photodetector. The influence on measurement accuracy of the wavelength shift and intensity fluctuation of the diode laser were surmounted by an effective feedback method. It is crucial whether the diode laser could be used in such a system.
