Abstract

A robust laser-frequency-locking scheme to atomic transitions is proposed and demonstrated. In this scheme, dispersion of the Zeeman-shifted atoms instead of absorption in the dichroic atomic vapor laser lock (DAVLL) [ Appl. Opt. 37, 3295 (1998) ] is measured and used as an error signal for stabilization feedback. The error signal of the proposed scheme can provide a wide locking range. Experimental demonstration with the transition between 5 d D 3 2 2 and 6 p P 1 2 2 of Ba + is carried out for a grating feedback external-cavity laser diode at 650 nm .
