Abstract

We report on phase locking of two continuous wave IR laser sources separated by 100 THz emitting around 1029 and 1544 nm, respectively. Our approach uses three independent harmonic generation processes of the IR laser frequencies in periodically poled MgO:LiNbO3 crystals to generate second and third harmonics of those two IR sources. The beat note between the two independent green radiations generated around 515 nm is used to phase lock one IR laser to the other, with tunable radio frequency offset. In this way, the whole setup operates as a mini-frequency comb emitting four intense optical radiations (1544, 1029, 772, and 515 nm), with output powers at least three orders of magnitude higher than the available power from each mode emitted by femtosecond lasers.
