Wavelength conversion technique for optical frequency dissemination applications
We demonstrate coherent wavelength conversion capable to cover the entire C-band by modulating the incoming optical carrier with a compact Fabry-Perot cavity embedded phase modulator and by optical injection locking (OIL) a semiconductor laser to a tone of the generated optical frequency comb. The phase noise of the converted optical carrier over 1 THz frequency interval is measured to be -40 dBc/Hz at 10 Hz offset and the frequency stability is better than 2 × 10-17 level for averaging times >1000 s, making this technique a promising solution for comparisons of state-of-the-art optical clocks over complex fiber networks.

Abstract

We demonstrate coherent wavelength conversion capable to cover the entire C-band by modulating the incoming optical carrier with a compact Fabry-Perot cavity embedded phase modulator and by optical injection locking (OIL) a semiconductor laser to a tone of the generated optical frequency comb. The phase noise of the converted optical carrier over 1 THz frequency interval is measured to be -40 dBc/Hz at 10 Hz offset and the frequency stability is better than 2 × 10-17 level for averaging times >1000 s, making this technique a promising solution for comparisons of state-of-the-art optical clocks over complex fiber networks.
