…quietest laser product. This superior noise and linewidth make the Mephisto the oscillator of choice in leading-edge applications such as the LIGO program aimed at measuring gravity waves by recording length changes as small as 1 part in 1022. In this white paper, we examine how the Mephisto…

…was ground-breaking,
but of course kHz linewidths today are
almost trivial. Just look at the LIGO
system that recently measured gravitational waves for the first time. The
LIGO team is locking the frequency
of your monolithic Mephisto lasers to
sub-Hz linewidths and…

Mephisto Gravitational Waves 2016.pdf

LIGO made the first
ever direct detection of gravitational waves in September 2015 [3]. The lasers used at the
input of the LIGO interferometers were Mephisto 2 W output power units, followed by power
amplifiers and stabilization schemes.

…is
the Mephisto, which was developed and
optimized specifically for LIGO (Laser
Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory); it is currently used as the master
laser oscillator in all working LIGO instruments. Mephisto is an Nd:YAG laser
that delivers a linewidth of ~1…

can manufacture 10 spherical surfaces
and mount 10 substrates at once, using a
single large tool to polish them; but this is
impossible for a freeform optic.
"The optics often suffer from mid- to
high-spatial-frequency surface errors.
It becomes a critical issue for…
