To measure light shifts for a planned parity violation experiment on radium ions, a standing wave of high light intensity is required. An optical enhancement cavity is employed for this purpose, which needs to be stable to fractions of a wavelength. This is accomplished by locking laser light to the cavity using the Pound-Drever-Hall frequency locking technique. This has resulted in a cavity that is stable to approximately 1 Å. Improvements to this setup can be done by stabilizing the temperature and shielding from vibrations as well as acquiring more massive mirror mounts.
