On the etalon effect generated by a Pockels cell with high-quality antireflection coatings. Academic Article uri icon


  • We discuss the modulation in the spectrum generated by the windows of a Pockels cell. Although they are antireflection coated, the residual reflectivity of the highly parallel window faces can still have etalon effects that lead to pronounced spectrum modulation. This problem is easily solved by the use of slightly wedged windows.
