Abstract

We report a time-domain method of stabilizing the carrier-envelope phase (CEP) of femtosecond pulses. Temporal variations of the pulse envelope and the carrier electric-field phase were separately detected with the aid of intensity cross-correlation and interferometric cross-correlation. These detected signals were used to stabilize the CEP; the resulting 50-fold improvement in the fractional stability of the carrier-envelop-offset frequency was evaluated as 1.2 × 10−11 at 0.1 second averaging periods and 1.7 × 10−9 at 80 seconds, corresponding to a carrier envelope phase noise of 75 microradians and 10 milliradians, respectively. This method can be realized with a low pulse energy of ~10 pJ and does not require subsequent power amplification or spectral broadening. The high efficiency and short-term stability of this method can facilitate the use of femtosecond lasers in the field of industrial surface measurements, telecommunications, and space sciences.

Time-domain stabilization of femtosecond light pulses. (a) The relative phase between the carrier (solid red line) and the pulse envelope (dotted blue line) evolves from pulse to pulse by the CEP, φ without active stabilization. (b) Detection of the group and phase velocity of femtosecond pulses by optical cross-correlations: BXCOR and IXCOR. Abbreviations are PBS: polarization beam splitter, BS: beam splitter, and M: mirror. Yellow arrows designate lock points.

System layout to stabilize the CEP of an Er-doped fiber femtosecond laser in the time-domain. The time-domain CEP stabilization unit includes an Er-doped femtosecond laser, an unbalanced interferometer, a BXCOR, and an IXCOR. Abbreviations are AOM: acousto-optic modulator, BS: beam splitter, PBS: polarization beam splitter, M: mirror, QWP: quarter-wave plate, PZT: piezo-electric actuator, HWP: half-wave plate, DM: dichroic mirror, PPKTP: periodically poled KTiOPO4, BD: balanced detector, LP: low-pass filter, and PMF: polarization-maintaining fiber.

Comparative measurement between the interferometric stabilized frequency comb and a cavity-stabilized cw reference laser. (a) Schematic of the setup . (b) Experimental configuration. (c) Time variation of the offset frequency measured from the interferometric phase as frδφIXCOR/2π (red line) and the actual offset frequency measured through the heterodyne signal against the reference cw laser (black line). Green line shows a time trace of locked fCEO by the proposed method. Abbreviations are BF: bandpass filter, P: polarizer, and PD: photo-detector.
