Paper Abstract

The ultra-stable laser can be converted to microwave signal with very high fidelity combining with the optical frequency comb, and the ultra-stable microwave down converted can be used as a local oscillator for Cs fountain clocks. To produce such a microwave source, we are developing a 1542 nm laser with a potential relative stability of 10-15 in one second. In this paper, the ultra-stable laser system with some key parameters and the Pound-Drever-Hall (PDH) locking system are introduced. Furthermore, the method and procedure of coupling the laser into the cavity resonator is described and a coupling efficiency of better than 30% is achieved. Further experiments are carried out and final results will be reported in the future.
