Carrier-envelope phase (CEP) stabilization plays an important role in the field of attosecond pulse generation and high-field physics . Low-jitter CEP stabilization of ultrashort pulses typically relies on active stabilization schemes, either employing feedback or feed-forward control. However, both established methods come with a detrimental side effect. Feedback control directly modulates pump power or intracavity loss, which causes unwanted power fluctuations of the laser output. While feed-forward control does not corrupt the output stability, it nevertheless induces beam pointing variations in the acousto-optic frequency shifter employed. Here we demonstrate a novel method for modulating the CEP of a laser oscillator, which is based on the Doppler effect and displays neither of the above-mentioned side-effects.
