Abstract

We demonstrate phase locking of a 729 nm diode laser to a 1542 nm master laser via an erbium-doped-fiber frequency comb, using a transfer-oscillator feedforward scheme which suppresses the effect of comb noise in an unprecedented 1.8 MHz bandwidth. We illustrate its performance by carrying out coherent manipulations of a trapped calcium ion with 99 % fidelity even at few-μs timescales. We thus demonstrate that transfer-oscillator locking can provide sufficient phase stability for high-fidelity quantum logic manipulation even without pre-stabilization of the slave diode laser.

(a) Setup for feed-forward of the repetition-rate noise. Electrical signals are in blue, optical signals are in red. PID: Proportional-Integral-Derivative feedback controller, DDS: Direct Digital Synthesis chip, FPI: Fabry-Pérot Interferometer for laser phase-noise measurements. b) The FPI converts high-frequency laser frequency noise into intensity noise which can be directly observed with a photodiode and spectrum analyzer.

Phase noise power spectral density of (a) a comb tooth at 729 nm (after removal of fC noise) (b) the free-running ECDL, for reference (c) the ECDL locked directly to the 729 nm comb tooth (d) the ECDL locked to the virtual beat with the 1542 nm master laser. The dashed line indicates the measurement noise floor for curves (b–d) due to laser intensity noise. Note the additional noise suppression bandwidth of spectrum (d) compared to that of spectrum (c).

Spectroscopy of the |2S1/2, m = 1/2〉 ↔ |2D5/2, m = 3/2〉 transition without (open) and with (filled) feed-forward cancellation of the comb repetition rate noise. Inset: Resonant Rabi oscillations. With the ECDL locked to the virtual transfer beat we obtain 99 % excitation contrast and a Fourier-limited spectrum for a 2.4 μs π pulse. Without feed-forward the excitation contrast is limited to 90 %. Lines are fits to the data with feed-forward of repetition rate noise.
