Abstract : The difference frequency between two 3.39 micron signals injected into a 6328 A and/or 1.15 micron He-Ne laser has been detected as an amplitude modulation of the 6328 A and/or 1.15 micron output intensity. Experimental measurements of the bandwidth of this detection scheme have been made for a 6328 A laser detector. It is shown that the fundamental equations of laser action properly predict the behavior of the laser detector and indicate the operating conditions which are necessary in order to achieve optimum bandwidth.
