This paper presents a wavelength lock system using a Z-cut quartz etalon supported at the middle point. The Z-cut quartz etalon possesses the cavity length modulation and the low temperature coefficient. We propose a Z-cut quartz etalon supported at the middle point in order to improve the modulation index and response time. The mechanism of the center supported Z-cut quartz etalon is described. We also show that the etalon possesses a high modulation index, a high Q factor, and a rapid response time in experimental results. A self-tuning dither oscillator realized by using quartz etalon is also described.
