Abstract

Accurate and traceable length metrology is employed by laser frequency stabilization. This paper describes a laser frequency stabilzation technique as a secondary standard with a fractional frequency stability of 5.2x10 -10 with 2 mW of power, suitable for practical applications. The feedback stabilization is driven by an intrinsic mixed mode signal, caused by nonlinear optical phenomena with adjacent modes. The mixed mode signals are described theoretically and experimentally verified.
