High-Resolution Frequency Standard at 1030 nm for Yb: YAG Solid-State Lasers

Abstract

A diode pumped solid-state YB:YAG laser has been stabilized to a high finesse cavity with an all-external servo loop. Ultrasensitive cavity enhanced frequency modulation spectroscopy has recovered a sub-Doppler acetylene overtone transition with a high signal-to-noise ratio, leading to an absorption sensitivity of 7 x 10-11 at I-s averaging time. This high-resolution molecular resonance serves as a long-term stable reference for the laser. The system can be developed into a highly compact and stable optical frequency standard in the 1.03 m wavelenghrange.
