Efficient diode laser line narrowing using dual, feed-forward + feed-back laser frequency control

Abstract : We have achieved DFB laser diode line narrowing by simultaneously acting on the diode current via a feedback loop and on an external electrooptic phase modulator in feed-forward actuator. This configuration turns out to be very efficient in reaching large bandwidth in the phase correction: up to 15 MHz with commercial laser control units. About 98% of the laser power undergoes narrowing. The full width at half maximum of the narrowed optical spectrum is of less than 4 kHz. This configuration appears to be very convenient as the delay in the feed-forward control electronics is easily compensated for by a 20 m optical fiber roll.
