Abstract

The long-term carrier-envelope phase (CEP) coherence of a femtosecond laser with same pulse-to-pulse CEP value, obtained using the direct locking method, is demonstrated by employing a quasi-common-path interferometer (QPI). For the evaluation of the CEP stability, the phase noise properties of a femtosecond laser with the CEP stabilized using a QPI are compared with those obtained using a Mach-Zehnder f-2f interferometer, for which the phase power spectral density and the Allan deviation were calculated from the beat signals of the interferometers. With the improved CEP stability, the long-term CEP coherent signal with an accumulated phase noise well below 1 radian can be maintained for more than 56 hours, i.e., the CEP coherence is preserved without a phase cycle slip for more than 1.6 × 1013 pulses at a repetition rate of 80 MHz. The relative stability is also estimated to be approximately 1.4 × 10−22 at a central wavelength of 790 nm.

Figures (4)

Fig. 1
Fig. 1

(Color online) Experimental setup used for comparing the stability performance between a two-arm f-2f interferometer (blue dashed box) and a quasi-common-path f-2f interferometer (red dashed box). The in-loop interferometer and DL setup are used to stabilize the CEP of the femtosecond laser, and the out-of-loop interferometer serves to monitor the stability performance of CEP. The black lines and dashed lines denote the paths of optical and electrical signals, respectively. FFT: fast Fourier-transform analyzer, HWP: half-wave plate, IF: interference filter, P: polarizer, PBS: polarization beam splitter, PCF: photonic crystal fiber, PD: double balanced detector, PZT: piezo-electric transducer.

Fig. 2
Fig. 2

(Color online) Phase power spectral density of stabilized CEP signals obtained with two interferometer setups in in-loop (a) and out-of-loop (b) conditions. The black lines represent the results of the two-arm f-2f interferometer and the red lines represent those of the quasi-common-path f-2f interferometer.

Fig. 3
Fig. 3

(Color online) (a) Integrated phase timing jitter and (b) Allan deviation calculated from the phase power spectral density given in Fig. 2. The black line and red line represent the results obtained with the two-arm scheme and the quasi-common-path scheme, respectively.

Fig. 4
Fig. 4

(Color online) In-loop beat signal observed over two days while maintaining CEP stabilization. The rms accumulated phase noise was calculated to be 60 mrad, which corresponds to a phase time jitter of 25 attoseconds at a central wavelength of 790nm. The inset shows the modified Allan deviation calculated with the long-term stabilized signal.
