Abstract

We demonstrate the use of an optical injection phase locked loop (OIPLL) as a regenerative amplifier for optical frequency transfer applications. The optical injection locking provides high gain within a narrow bandwidth (<100MHz ) 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 ultrastable optical carrier, stabilized to an optical frequency standard, over a 292km 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.
