Abstract

We propose new solutions for expanding the linear signal range between the laser frequency deviation (or mirror position) and the voltage signal derived by the Pound-Drever-Hall (PDH) method for optical Fabry–Perot cavity resonance control. One solution is to perform not in-phase demodulation but near-Q-phase demodulation. Another solution is to take a suitable combination of signals demodulated by odd-harmonic modulation frequencies in the in phase. Although the PDH signal sensitivity will be diminished, the PDH signal linear range can be extended. From a practical standpoint, it is desirable that a sideband frequency for the PDH method is near the FP cavity resonance.
