mode beating

The production of a difference signal that is generated when two longitudinal laser diode modes interfere with one another. The difference signal oscillates at a frequency that is the difference between the individual frequencies of the modes that are being interfered. Mode beating is a common technique for generating signals at a lower frequency for applications for which the original source signal cannot be utilized.
