Abstract

We have demonstrated a compact, robust device for simultaneous absolute frequency stabilization of three diode lasers whose carrier frequencies can be chosen freely relative to the reference. A rigid ULE multicavity block is employed, and, for each laser, the sideband locking technique is applied. A small lock error, computer control of frequency offset, wide range of frequency offset, simple construction, and robust operation are the useful features of the system. One concrete application is as a stabilization unit for the cooling and trapping lasers of a neutral-atom lattice clock. The device significantly supports and improves the clock’s operation. The laser with the most stringent requirements imposed by this application is stabilized to a line width of 70 Hz, and a residual frequency drift less than 0.5Hz/s. The carrier optical frequency can be tuned over 350 MHz while in lock.

FSS schematic. The offset-locking electronics for the 813 and 922 nm lasers are the same as what is indicated by the red dotted box. FC, fiber collimator; FS, fiber splitter; ES, electronic splitter; BS, beam splitter; PD, photodetector; M, mirror; PM, phase modulation unit; DDS, direct digital synthesizer.

Red trace: typical spectrum of the cascaded PM light taken at 689 nm on cavity 2, obtained by scanning the carrier laser frequency ω0 relative to the cavity resonance. The small peak at about 45MHz is from a higher-order cavity mode. Black trace: PDH error signal after demodulation at ΩPDH/2π=12.6MHz. Note the absence of any error signal when the carrier ω0 is in resonance with the cavity mode (at zero detuning) and the opposite slope of the error signal for the upper and lower sidebands. Here, α0.7, β1.

Fig. 4.

Absolute frequency drift of the laser. Left inset: power spectrum of the virtual beat note between the sideband-stabilized 689 nm laser and an ultrastable 1156 nm reference laser. The width of the beat note corresponds to the linewidth of the 689 nm laser. The sidebands at approximately 1 kHz offset are due to the acoustic noise of a cooling fan. Right inset: frequency drift over six days.

Laser frequency shift (LFS) of the sideband-locked 689 nm laser upon vacuum chamber tilts. Inset shows the LFS versus time data from which the main plots were generated.

Frequency tuning of the carrier frequency of the 689 nm laser while its sideband was locked to the FSS. A frequency counter recorded the beat signal with another frequency-stable laser (1 s gate time).
