We report hertz level relative linewidth distributed feedback diode lasers with external optical feedback from a high finesse F-P cavity, and demonstrate the efficient phase noise suppression and laser linewidth reduction of the optical feedback technique. The laser phase noise is dramatically suppressed throughout the measurement frequency range.(More)
We present a extended-cavity diode laser (ECDL) with kilohertz linewidth by optical feedback from a monolithic folded Fabry-Perot cavity (MFC). In our experiments, an MFC replaces the retroreflecting mirror in the traditional ECDL configuration. Beat-note measurements between this MFC-ECDL and a narrow-linewidth reference laser are performed and demonstrate(More)
An optical frequency comb based on Yb:ring fiber laser was demonstrated. This is the first time, to our knowledge, f(ceo) has been generated directly from the oscillator without further amplifications above 500 MHz repetition rate. The signal-to-noise ratio of the offset frequency was above 40 dB at 300 kHz resolution bandwidth, which supports easy(More)
A general analytical form of the round trip phase shift in grating feedback diode lasers is proposed. Using the new form, it is obvious that the round trip phase shift can be independent of rotation angle in first order approximation when only one restriction condition is met. We call this the quasi synchronous tuning (QST) condition. In the QST region, a(More)
We present the characterization of the carrier envelope offset frequency of 490 MHz femtosecond Yb-fiber ring laser. After amplification and compression, 1.7 W 90 fs pulses were produced for octave-span-spectrum generation from 600 nm to 1300 nm. More than 30 dB S/N ratio carrier envelope offset frequency signal was measured through a quasi-common-path(More)
—— The large magnetoelectric (ME) coupling in the ME laminates makes them attractive for ultrasensitive room temperature magnetic sensors. Here we investigate the field sensitivity and signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) of ME laminates, consisting of magnetostrictive and piezoelectric layers (Metglas and piezopolymer PVDF were used as the model system), which are(More)
We demonstrate coherent beam combination between independent femtosecond Yb-fiber lasers by using the active phase locking of relative pulse timing and the carrier envelope phase based on a balanced optical cross-correlator and extracavity acoustic optical frequency shifter, respectively. The broadband quantum noise of femtosecond fiber lasers is suppressed(More)
