Abstract

Stabilization of laser frequency to interferometers with a large time delay in one arm is of significant interest to space-based gravitational wave detectors such as the Laser Interferometer Space Antenna. A recently proposed technique allows a control bandwidth larger than the inverse delay time to be achieved. We present experimental results demonstrating laser frequency stabilization to an optical fiber delay line. A control bandwidth approximately 50 times the inverse delay time is demonstrated.
