Using an injection-locking technique, we obtain high-power single-frequency emission from a multimode argon-ion laser. Furthermore, a phase-control loop permits the stable, coherent summation of the beams from the two lasers.

  9. In order to lower the shot-noise limit and to permit the interferometric detection of phase fluctuations as small as 10−10 fringe, most projects in this field rely on the availability of 100-W single-frequency visible lasers.
