Abstract

We implemented a laser system to be used in an optical transduction chain for the gravitational-wave bar detector AURIGA (Antenna Ultracriogenica Risonante per l’Indagine Gravitazionale Astronomica; Ultracryogenic Resonant Antenna for Astronomical Gravitational Investigation). This system is based on a Nd:YAG laser and includes quantum-limited power stabilization in the acoustic range, deep phase modulation and near-quantum-limited rf detection for locking onto optical cavities, and coupling to a single-mode polarization-maintaining optical fiber without deterioration of performance. Such a system has wide applications in optical metrology.
