Laser is a very important optical tool that has found widespread use in science and industry. The mode characteristics of a laser are important parameters to determine the application scope of the laser. Mode analysis is done through serial experiments so that various parameters can be obtained to determine how the laser performs against desired specifications. This system is designed to quantitatively assess the mode characteristics of a He-Ne laser. Using a frequency-stabilized laser as light source, the longitudinal mode of the laser is controllable. This system comes with detailed theoretical and operational descriptions so that experiments can be conducted with ease.

Experimental contents cover 

1. observation and understanding of the longitudinal mode and gain curve

2. observation and analysis of the frequency characteristics of a He-Ne laser
