Abstract : The patent concerns an apparatus which will simultaneously Q-switch several independent ruby lasers and is used to beat the several laser outputs together. The Q-switching function is achieved by rotating a single rooftop prism which is in optical alignment with each of the lasers. The several lasers are tuned to differing frequencies, a difference frequency signal being obtained by beating the two signals together.
