Optical injection locking based amplification in phase coherent transfer of optical frequencies

Optical injection locking based amplification in phase coherent transfer of optical frequencies
We demonstrate use of an optical injection phase locked loop (OIPLL) as a regenerative amplifier for optical frequency transfer applications. The optical injection locking (OIL) provides high gain within a narrow bandwidth (< 100 MHz), and is capable of preserving the fractional frequency stability of the incoming carrier to better than 10^(-18) at 1000 s. The OIPLL was tested in the field as a mid-span amplifier for the transfer of an ultra-stable optical carrier, stabilized to an optical frequency standard, over a 292 km-long installed dark fiber link. The transferred frequency at the remote end reached a fractional frequency instability of less than 1 × 10^(-19) at averaging time of 3200 s.

Abstract

We demonstrate use of an optical injection phase locked loop (OIPLL) as a regenerative amplifier for optical frequency transfer applications. The optical injection locking (OIL) provides high gain within a narrow bandwidth (< 100 MHz), and is capable of preserving the fractional frequency stability of the incoming carrier to better than 10^(-18) at 1000 s. The OIPLL was tested in the field as a mid-span amplifier for the transfer of an ultra-stable optical carrier, stabilized to an optical frequency standard, over a 292 km-long installed dark fiber link. The transferred frequency at the remote end reached a fractional frequency instability of less than 1 × 10^(-19) at averaging time of 3200 s.
