Abstract : The patent concerns a rapidly, continuously and synchronously tuned laser and laser detector incorporating a Fabry-Perot interferometer (FPI) such that one of the FPI optical reflectors is mounted on an electronically driven piezoelectric crystal and the separation of the FPI optical reflectors is varied by varying the voltage driving the crystal.
