Abstract

Two, lightweight diode laser frequency stabilization systems designed for experiments in the field are described. Similar to a previous design, magnetic-field lines are contained within a magnetic shield enclosing permanent magnets and Rb cells, so that this DAVLL system may be used for magnetically sensitive instruments. The design and performance characterization of an even smaller DAVLL system (0.35” long) using a micro-fabricated cell (0.12” long) are also reported.
