Title

Wavelength metrology through etaloning effects and color filtering

Abstract

Many research laboratories require accurate wavelength meters, but commercially available models can cost upwards of $30,000 and tend to be quite fragile. We are developing a method of utilizing color filtering and etaloning effects from the window and Bayer filter on a CCD camera to calculate the wavelength of a laser. Our proposed device is substantially less expensive and is projected to yield picometer-level accuracy.Many research laboratories require accurate wavelength meters, but commercially available models can cost upwards of $30,000 and tend to be quite fragile.
