We are developing tunable microwave sources based on a passively stabilized diode-pumped Nd: YAG laser. The laser operates on two orthogonal modes, which may be tuned by applying a voltage to an intra-cavity electro-optic crystal or by rotating an intra-cavity waveplate. We compare and characterize these alternative cavity designs in terms of power, tunability and noise.
