Abstract
A polychromatic acousto-optic modulator was used as a wavelength selector in an argon ion laser. It was mounted inside an argon ion laser mirror holder. The characteristics of the laser with and without wavelength selector were measured and are reported here. The single line output intensities of laser with the polychromatic acousto-optic modulator and an intercavity Brewster prism wavelength selector were compared to estimate the effect of gain competition among lines.
