Single mode laser fields oscillate at frequencies well outside the realm of electronics, but their phase/frequency fluctuations fall into the radio frequency domain, where direct manipulation is possible. Electro-optic devices have sufficient bandwidth for controlling and tailoring the dynamics of a laser field down to sub-nanosecond time scales. Thus, a laser field can be arbitrarily reshaped and in particular its phase/frequency fluctuations can be in principle removed. In practice, the time…

High-bandwidth transfer of phase stability through a fiber frequency comb.

It is demonstrated that transfer-oscillator locking can provide sufficient phase stability for high-fidelity quantum logic manipulation even without pre-stabilization of the slave diode laser.

Optical feedback frequency stabilized cavity ring-down spectroscopy.

We introduce optical feedback frequency stabilized cavity ring-down spectroscopy (OFFS-CRDS), a near-shot-noise-limited technique that combines kilohertz resolution with an absorption detection

Optical phase cloning by an integrated dual-parallel Mach-Zehnder modulator.

Optical feedback stabilized laser tuned by single-sideband modulation.

A subkilohertz-linewidth distributed-feedback diode laser that is optical-feedbacks locked to a highly stable V-shaped cavity with drift rates below 20 Hz/s is reported, which will be a powerful tool for metrological applications, in particular a redetermination of the Boltzmann constant by molecular spectroscopy.

Stabilization of femtosecond laser frequency combs with subhertz residual linewidths.

Carrier-envelope phase control of femtosecond mode-locked lasers and direct optical frequency synthesis

The carrier-envelope phase of the pulses emitted by a femtosecond mode-locked laser is stabilized by using the powerful tools of frequency-domain laser stabilization to perform absolute optical frequency measurements that were directly referenced to a stable microwave clock.
