Student/faculty collaborative research to appear in Optics Communications journal

Release date: October 28, 2011

The paper titled "Simple Laser Frequency Locking Based on Doppler-Free Magnetically Induced Dichroism" by Dr. Marin Pichler and his research student David Hall (Goucher class of 2011) will appear in forthcoming issue of  Optics Communications journal. The work which was presented last November at Optical Society of America annual meeting, describes a simple and novel method for active  stabilization and reduction of frequency jitter of a diode laser. The method is based on magnetically induced dichroism in atomic vapor applied in Doppler-free saturated absorption setup. For more details follow the link below
