Towards the Detection of High-Contrast Cs CPT Resonances Using a Single Modulated Diode Laser

Abstract

This paper reports the key development steps of a Bi-Frequency Bi-Polarization (BiFBiP) laser system that generates from a single externally-modulated Distributed Feedback (DFB) laser source two phase-coherent optical lines resonant on the Cs D 1 line (894.6 nm), frequency-splitted by 9.192 GHz and exhibiting linear crossed polarizations. Two different architectures, based on electro-optic modulators as key components for optical sidebands generation, are presented. Residual frequency stability performances of the DFB laser source are measured to be less than 10 -11 for integration times up to 200 s. Phase noise performances of the optically carried microwave signal as well as polarization analysis at the output of the BiFBiP system are reported. Using this laser system, Coherent Population Trapping (CPT) resonances with contrast up to 5.8 % in a mm-scale vapor cell and 22 % in a cm-scale cell are preliminary reported.
