Spectral characterization of a narrow linewidth, single-frequency 780 nm fiber laser source for atom cooling applications

780 nm narrowband laser sources (corresponding to Rubidium D2 line) are useful for cooling and trapping atoms for, by example, Bose-Einstein condensation or gravimetry applications [1]. For laser spectral characterization with a linewidth of 100 kHz or less, the standard delayed self-heterodyne interferometric technique needs at least ten kilometers of fiber delay and becomes difficult to implement at visible or near-infrared wavelengths due to excessive fiber attenuation. Moreover, results interpretation is problematic when laser frequency noise is not dominated by white noise [2]. We then propose and experiment in the following an alternative method for laser linewidth determination at 780 nm based on frequency noise spectrum measurement.
