We describe the stabilization of the beatnote of an Er,Yb:glass dual-frequency laser at 1.5 mum with and without an external microwave reference. In the first case, a classical optical phase-locked loop (OPLL) is used, and absolute phase noise levels as low as -117 dBrad2/Hz at 10 kHz from the carrier are reported. In the second case one or two fiber-optic delay lines are used to lock the frequency of the beatnote. Absolute phase noise levels as low as -107 dBrad2/Hz at 10 kHz from the carrier… CONTINUE READING
