Abstract

A single-longitudinal-mode ErYb:glass laser with a linewidth of 90kHz is demonstrated by locking the laser wavelength to 1552.6nm with a bulk glass Bragg grating. Using a piezoelectric actuator, the wavelength could be tuned over a range of 0.25nm (31GHz) in steps of 17pm (2.1GHz), with an output power of a few milliwatts.
