Abstract

We have constructed a compact iodine-stabilized 543 nm HeNe laser using the third-harmonic locking technique. From the signal-to-noise ratio, the noise-limited-stability would be better than 1 × 10-12 for integration time > 1 s. Moreover, several crossover resonances of R(12) 26-0 line are investigated and identified. Two crossover resonances are found adjacent to the hyperfine component a9, the recommended wavelength standard. Instead, we suggest the hyperfine component b10 of R(106) 28-0 line as the wavelength standard for the absence of neighboring main lines or crossover resonances.
