Abstract

The frequency stabilization of a laser diode in the 1.3μm region using double resonance optical pumping (DROP) spectrum in the 5P3/26S1/2 transition of Rb87 atoms is demonstrated. The signal-to-noise ratio of the DROP spectrum is approximately ten times higher than that of the previous optical–optical double resonance spectrum. The spectral linewidth of the DROP measures 8.4MHz. When the frequency of a 1.367μm laser diode is stabilized to the DROP spectrum, the frequency stability is 9×1012 after 100s. Also, the wavelength of the frequency-stabilized laser locked to the 5P3/26S1/2 transition using a wavelength meter is measured.
