Abstract

The potential for using a Fabry-Perot cavity as a reference for controlling both the carrier frequency and phase of a pulse relative to that of the cavity is shown. This technique stabilizes the repetition frequency of the laser without the need for an electronic radiofrequency oscillator. The stabilization was performed in the frequency domain by locking more than 500,000 longitudinal modes of the KLM laser to that of the reference cavity.
