Abstract

We demonstrate injection locking of high-power laser diodes operating at 397 nm. We achieve stable operation with an injection power of 100μW and a slave laser output power of up to 110 mW. We investigate the spectral purity of the slave laser light via photon scattering experiments on a single trapped Ca40+ ion. We show that it is possible to achieve a scattering rate indistinguishable from that of monochromatic light by filtering the laser light with a diffraction grating to remove amplified spontaneous emission.
