Abstract

A method for automatically setting the cavity eigenfrequencies of a pulsed laser to the emission frequency of a continuous single-frequency master oscillator has been developed and investigated. The operating principle of the given system is explained, and the results of a study of how it affects the characteristics of the radiation of a pulsed laser are presented. The system described here can be used to stabilize the process of single-frequency lasing of a pulsed laser with the injection of an external signal and to reduce the jitter of the light pulses by a factor of 2 and the scatter of their amplitude by a factor of more than 3.
