Abstract

Two different laser phase noise measurement techniques are compared. One of these two techniques is based on a conventional and low-cost delay line system, which is usually set up for the linewidth measurement of semiconductor lasers. The results obtained with both techniques on a high-spectral-purity laser agree well and confirm the interest of the low-cost technique. Moreover, an extraction of the laser linewidth using computer-aided design tools is performed.
