Abstract

We demonstrate a miniature self-injection locked distributed-feedback laser using resonant optical feedback from a high-Q crystalline whispering-gallery-mode resonator. The linewidth reduction factor is greater than 10,000, with resultant instantaneous linewidth of less than 200Hz. The minimal value of the Allan deviation for the laser- frequency stability is 3×1012 at the integration time of 20μs. The laser possesses excellent spectral purity and good long-term stability.
