Abstract

A compact extended cavity diode laser (ECDL) system operating at 852 nm for small optically pumped cesium (Cs) beam frequency standards was reported. ECDL and a saturated absorption spectroscopy setup were all built in an aluminum box with dimension of 10*10*7 (cm). ECDL was based on a Littman-Metcaff configuration, whose free-running linewidth was less than 600 kHz. A digital automatic frequency lock unit (AFLU) was developed to lock the laser frequency to specify Cs absorption lines automatically and re-lock it in case of lock broken. With AFLU, the laser frequency was continuously locked for several weeks.
