Abstract

Stable, narrow-linewidth optical sources are necessary in modern atomic physics. An appealing approach to achieving 10kHz frequency stability is optical feedback. We have designed a compact external cavity diode laser with optical feedback to a filter cavity mounted on a single baseplate and enclosed inside a vacuum sealed box. The design was implemented for three wavelengths addressing the 422nm cooling, 1091nm repumping, and 674nm clock transition lines of Sr+. We are able to cool a single, trapped strontium ion to 2mK and observe motional sidebands of the 5S124D52 transition.
