Abstract

The intensity-noise reduction of a laser-diode-pumped single-frequency ring Nd:YVO4 laser when different optoelectronic control systems are used is theoretically and experimentally investigated. It has been demonstrated that combining two techniques, optoelectronic feedback control of the drive current of the pump laser diode and feed-forward control of the output laser beam, is a good way to significantly suppress the intensity noise of a laser at low frequency.
