Abstract

We demonstrate a miniature self-injection locked distributed-feedback laser using resonant optical feedback from a high-Q crystalline whispering-gallery-mode resonator. The linewidth reduction factor is greater than 10,000, with resultant instantaneous linewidth of less than 200 Hz . The minimal value of the Allan deviation for the laser- frequency stability is 3 × 10 12 at the integration time of 20 μs . The laser possesses excellent spectral purity and good long-term stability.
