Paper Abstract

With the optical phase lock loop (OPLL) we made, we can achieve phase locking at frequency differences ranging from 0.5GHz to 7.5 GHz. This OPLL is fully applicable in atomic physics experiments, mostly in coherent lasers frequency locking. Two kinds of modulation modes were brought to ensure the frequency range and precision: the fast feedback current as the injection current and the slow feedback current to adjust the piezo-electric transducer. This device has been put into an optical lattice platform to lock a laser used for cooling and trapping atoms. The beat signal has a -3dB band width of 1Hz at 6.834GHz, corresponding to the hyperfine splitting of the ground state 87Rb atom.
