Only low (<1 W) laser power is needed for
this method because the high numerical

900 option offers automatic cavity-length control. Length actuators are used to lock the cavity
repetition rate to an internal crystal oscillator or
to an external reference frequency. Computer
control allows `one touch' lock acquisition.

there is no stored gain, only instantaneous gain. The
behavior of the individual cavity modes therefore is
determined solely by the cavity, the gain just follows
