Abstract

A 760-nm light source of >10 mW is obtained from a frequency-doubled external-cavity diode laser by use of using an erbium-doped fiber amplifier and a periodically poled lithium niobate waveguide. The 5S 1/2 → 7S 1/2 two-photon transitions of rubidium are observed with such a light source. This laser frequency is locked to the Rb two-photon transitions with an instability of 10 kHz (1 s). Our experimental scheme provides a compact, high-performance frequency, standard in the S band (1480–1530 nm) for fiber-optic communication and sensing applications.
