Paper Abstract

For investigations of fine details of atomic energy spectra light sources are required which emit light with very well defined frequency. A powerful tunable light source is the cw dye laser. Since the frequency of a free-running laser jitters, it has to be stabilized. In order to avoid the high internal losses of a stabilization system with an intracavity electrooptic crystal, a very fast piezoelectric mirror translator has been developed. It was driven by properly designed electronics. Thus a small laser frequency bandwidth of 270 kHz rms with an output power of up to 200 mW was obtained. The laser system was tested in a sub-natural linewidth two-photon experiment with Na atoms.
