Quantum noise limited interferometry

Gray, Malcolm B

Description

A small bench top interferometer, built to study modulation interferometry is described. A number of different interferometer configurations are trialed, all using a continuos wave, Nd:YAG laser. The ability of these configurations to operate at the shot noise limit is documented and technical noise sources that detract from this limit are investigated. The frequency and intensity noise properties of the Nd:YAG laser, used throughout this work, are documented. It is shown that the free...[Show more]
