Paper Abstract

Optical feedback from velocity-selective magnetic-optical activity in alkali metal vapors has been shown to be an effective technique for simultaneously stabilizing the frequency and reducing the linewidth of AlxGa1-xAs/GaAs lasers. The ultimate frequency stability of such a laser is limited by the quality factor Q equals (nu) 0/(Delta) (nu) of this frequency reference. In this letter we report the measurement of Q equals 6 (DOT) 106 for optical feedback from velocity-selective magnetic-optical activity in Rb vapor.
