Abstract
Proposed for the first time to our knowledge is a novel scheme of a diode-pumped birefringent dual-frequency Nd:YAG laser, whose resonant cavity contains a piece of versatile element: crystal quartz Fabry-Perot etalon, acting as a mode selector and a mode splitter as well as a reference of stabilizing the frequency-difference. The laser will oscillate simultaneously in two linearly and orthogonally polarized modes spaced 5-GHz, corresponding to a synthetic wavelength of approximately 60-mm, which is well suitable for absolute-distance interferometry. The stabilization of the frequency-difference is also considered in detail.
