Abstract A technique for obtaining high-power single-frequency output from a long ring laser is described and demonstrated. A double feedback system is discussed, which stabilizes the laser frequency with respect to the center of the atomic gain curve. Experiments are reported which demonstrate the existence of a narrow atomic-line-center discriminant. The extension of this technique to dc-excited ion lasers is discussed.
