Abstract

The frequency stabilization of a laser diode in the 1.3 μm region using double resonance optical pumping (DROP) spectrum in the 5 P 3 / 2 6 S 1 / 2 transition of Rb 87 atoms is demonstrated. The signal-to-noise ratio of the DROP spectrum is approximately ten times higher than that of the previous optical–optical double resonance spectrum. The spectral linewidth of the DROP measures 8.4 MHz . When the frequency of a 1.367 μm laser diode is stabilized to the DROP spectrum, the frequency stability is 9 × 10 12 after 100 s . Also, the wavelength of the frequency-stabilized laser locked to the 5 P 3 / 2 6 S 1 / 2 transition using a wavelength meter is measured.
