Abstract

We investigate the intensity noise induced by pump-power fluctuations in a diode-pumped single-frequency codoped Tm–Ho:YAG laser and we measure, in the frequency domain, the corresponding transfer function. Good agreement between the measured transfer functions and the theoretical prediction is found. A relative intensity-noise level of ~- 110 dB/Hz from ~1 kHz to the relaxation-oscillation frequency, with complete suppression of the relaxation-oscillation peak, is achieved by use of a suitable optoelectronic feedback circuit.
