ORS-Mini: ultrastable laser with 2 Hz linewidth as optical reference in field applications

Menlo Systems, leading supplier of precision photonics instruments, just released the ORS-Mini – an ultrastable laser with less than 2 Hz linewidth. Designed as a compact 19" rack module for field applications, the laser frequency stability of <5 · 10−15 in 1 s (MADEV) and phase noise of -94 dBc/Hz (at 10 kHz offset) are best in class. The system’s centerpiece is a 5 cm high-finesse ULE cavity, which has been licensed from the National Physical Laboratory (UK). The cubic cavity design provides the lowest vibration sensitivity reported to date and enables a rigid cavity mounting, allowing for mobile use of the apparatus. The system operates fully autonomously, can be intuitively controlled via touchscreen, and is remotely accessible via a network connection. The laser system is available at 1542 nm and at 1064 nm.

The ORS Mini has been conceived as ultrastable optical reference intended for terrestrial use and is ideally suited for applications in quantum computation, as a source of ultralow-noise microwaves for radar systems, as a flywheel in optical clocks, for frequency dissemination via optical fibers, or in various spectroscopic experiments.
