Single-longitudinal-mode diamond laser stabilization using polarization-dependent Raman gain

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearchpeer-review

Abstract

We report a novel cavity feedback mechanism for stabilizing single-longitudinalmode (SLM) operation of diamond Raman lasers. Polarization-dependent Raman gain and in-grown stress birefringence in diamond were investigated as sources for Hänsch-Couillaud-type locking signals. The power range of SLM operation increased from 2.1 W to 7.2 W, compared to the free-running laser, for a simple standing-wave laser cavity without frequency-selective elements. Methods for further increasing power range and frequency stability are discussed.
