Abstract

We report the frequency stabilization of a diode-laser-pumped monolithic ring Nd:YAG laser locked to a high-finesse optical cavity. With an independent cavity as a frequency discriminator, the absolute frequency noise was measured to be as low as 2 × 10−2 Hz/Hz1/2 at the Fourier frequency of approximately 3 kHz. We also measured the heterodyne beat note between two lasers locked to the independent cavities. The beat linewidth is narrower than 30 Hz and the minimum root Allan variance is approximately 6 × 10−14.
