Ultra-stable optical microresonators for atomic clock and quantum computing applications (Conference Presentation)
Author(s): Andrey B. Matsko; Skip Williams; Anatoliy Savchenkov

Paper Abstract

A crystalline microresonator with overall thermal sensitivity of the optical spectrum approaching zero is designed and demonstrated experimentally. The resonator is made by integrating a calcium fluoride layer forming an optical whispering gallery mode resonator with ceramic compensation layers. The ceramics is characterized with negative thermal expansion coefficient in a limited temperature range. The thermally compensated resonator has a potential application for laser frequency stabilization. We demonstrate a self-injection locked laser characterized with Allan Deviation on the order of 10^-12 at 1s integration time and study the factors limiting its stability.
