Abstract

Light from a Nd:YAG laser at 1064 nm is independently stabilized to two Fabry–Perot etalons situated on separate vibration-isolation platforms. A heterodyne beat measurement shows their relative frequency stability to be at the part-in- 1015 level at 5 s and the relative linewidth to be less than 1 Hz.
