Abstract

Stable, narrow-linewidth optical sources are necessary in modern atomic physics. An appealing approach to achieving 10 kHz frequency stability is optical feedback. We have designed a compact external cavity diode laser with optical feedback to a filter cavity mounted on a single baseplate and enclosed inside a vacuum sealed box. The design was implemented for three wavelengths addressing the 422 nm cooling, 1091 nm repumping, and 674 nm clock transition lines of Sr + . We are able to cool a single, trapped strontium ion to 2 mK and observe motional sidebands of the 5 S 1 2 4 D 5 2 transition.
