Abstract

We report a subkilohertz-linewidth distributed-feedback diode laser that is optical-feedback locked to a highly stable V-shaped cavity with drift rates below 20Hz/s. This source is continuously tunable over 1 THz around 1590 nm by selecting a cavity mode and using an innovative single-sideband modulation scheme, which allows for frequency shifting over up to 40 GHz with millihertz accuracy. This robust setup achieves high performance without advanced vibration isolation and will be a powerful tool for metrological applications, in particular a redetermination of the Boltzmann constant by molecular spectroscopy.
