Abstract: This paper reviews the dynamic effect of thin-slice solid-state lasers subjected to frequency-shifted optical feedback, which led to the discovery of the self-mixing modulation effect, and its applications to quantum-noise-limited versatile laser metrology systems with extreme optical sensitivity.
Keywords: laser-diode pumping; thin-slice solid-state laser; self-mixing modulation; optical metrology
