Abstract

We study stability and spectral purity of a microresonator-based Kerr frequency comb oscillator experimentally and observe a correlation between the frequency of the continuous wave laser pumping the nonlinear resonator and the repetition frequency of the comb. This correlation is used in a proof-of-principle demonstration of a Kerr frequency comb stabilized with an optical transition of Rb87.

Characteristics of a free running Kerr comb-based RF photonic oscillator. Single sideband (SSB) phase noise, (a) of the 10 GHz as well as 35 GHz RF signals generated by free-running optical Kerr frequency combs on a fast photodiode. (b) The Allan deviation for the 35 GHz comb is shown in panel. The WGM resonator temperature is stabilized using a thermistor and a thermoelectric cooler (TEC).

Fig. 2.

Schematic of the experimental setup used to observe correlation between the drift of the optical comb harmonics and the Kerr comb repetition rate. The comb repetition rate is measured directly via the RF signal generated at the output of a fast photodiode. A separate laser locked to an HCN transition is utilized to measure the optical frequency. The beat frequency between two lasers is set to be approximately 50 MHz.

Observation of correlation between the comb repetition rate and the pump frequency using setup shown in Fig. 1. (a) Allan deviation of frequency of the pump DFB no. 2 laser (blue), comb (red), and a DFB laser no. 1 locked to an HCN transition utilized for the measurement of the frequency of the pump laser (magenta). (b) Simultaneously measured drift of the optical pump frequency (blue) and RF frequency (red). The optical frequency drift is scaled by the constant ratio ω 0 / ω RF .

(a) Plot of short-term sliding Allan deviation of the locked Kerr comb oscillator. Fringes due to periodic 0.24 Hz modulation of the oscillator frequency are clearly seen. (b) Allan deviation plot for the locked Kerr frequency comb oscillator. Three realizations are shown (blue circles, triangles, and diamonds). The smallest Allan deviation that can be measured with the setup is shown by red circles. (c) Frequency measurement results used to calculate the Allan deviation (blue circles) of the oscillator frequency.
