Continuously Tunable Precise, Single Frequency Optical Signal Generator
J D. Jost, John L. Hall, Jun Ye
To realize a genuine CW optical frequency synthesizer, a continuously tunable single-frequency CW laser has been employed to track preciselyany arbitrary component of a wide bandwidth phase-stabilized optical comb. We dermnstrate in experiment two fundamental aspects of opticalfrequency synthesis, namely, precise setting of the laser frequency at a arbitrary predetermined value, and continuous tuning of the laser frequency with the digital precision known in radio frequency synthesis. A typical computer-automated search-and-lock procedure finishes on one-minute time scale.
