Abstract

Optical frequency measurements with a reference cavity stabilized femtosecond laser for improved short term stability were discussed. The system was applied for an accurate measurement of the dispersion of air at 800 nm. The modes of the reference cavity were measured by locking a cw laser to various longitudinal modes of the reference cavity. By taking the difference of measurements between the fs comb and reference cavity spacing in vacuum and in air, the group velocity dispersion of air at 780 nm was found to be 0.2 fs2/cm.
