New Concepts for Operating Ring Laser Gyroscopes
(University of Canterbury. Physics and Astronomy, 2010)
A ring laser gyroscope (gyro) is an active laser interferometer designed to sense rotation through the Sagnac frequency shift encountered by two beams travelling in opposite directions around a closed path. The classes of ...
Ring laser gain media
(University of Canterbury. Physics, 2006)
This thesis details the design and construction of an experiment to measure the radial distribution of laser gain in a cylindrical Helium-Neon laser gain tube. This distribution is important as it can effect the transverse ...
