Abstract

A cesium 6 S 1 2 8 S 1 2 two-photon-transition (TPT)–stabilized 822.5 nm diode laser is reported for the first time to our knowledge. Allan deviation of 4.4 × 10 13 ( 60 s ) was achieved, and the possible systematic errors were evaluated as smaller than 2 kHz . We demonstrate that the cesium TPT-stabilized diode laser could be a reliable frequency reference at 822.5 nm wavelength.
