Research Progress on Narrow Linewidth Laser based on Whispering Gallery Mode Microcavity

  • 摘要: 窄线宽激光凭借其极低的相位噪声,在量子技术、时频传输、高精度传感等前沿领域发挥着至关重要的作用。回音壁模式光学微腔,得益于其高品质因子、小模式体积和宽光学透明窗口的特性,能够极大地增强光与物质的相互作用,不仅在较宽的谱段范围内可以获得良好的激光线宽压窄效果,而且具有良好的可调谐特性,因此成为了窄线宽激光研究领域的热点。回顾了基于回音壁微腔的窄线宽激光研究进展,首先介绍了回音壁微腔及其热噪声理论基础和激光线宽评价原理,随后讨论了当前基于回音壁微腔产生窄线宽激光的主要方法,包括基于受激布里渊散射与受激拉曼散射效应的泵浦式窄线宽激光,以及基于自注入锁定与PDH锁定技术的锁定式窄线宽激光,梳理了它们的研究现状、关键技术特点以及性能指标。介绍了中国计量科学研究院在基于高品质因子晶体回音壁微腔窄线宽激光方面的研究进展,并对回音壁微腔窄线宽激光的发展进行了总结与展望。
