Abstract

The introduction of a buffer reservoir mechanism with optimized time-constants and cross sections in a laser system enables breaking any resonant exchange between the population inversion and photon population over an extremely wide bandwidth. The associated noise cancellation, including the excess noise at relaxation oscillations and spontaneous-signal beating, is experimentally evidenced up to 16 GHz in an Er,Yb laser comprising a GaAs two-photon absorber. Such approach is shown to preserve the laser linewidth quality and is advantageously implemented for optical distribution of frequency references.
