Abstract

We present a versatile laser system which provides more than 1.5 W of narrowband light, tunable in the range from 455–463 nm. It consists of a commercial titanium-sapphire laser which is frequency doubled using resonant cavity second harmonic generation and stabilized to an external reference cavity. We demonstrate a wide wavelength tuning range combined with a narrow linewidth and low intensity noise. This laser system is ideally suited for atomic physics experiments such as two-photon excitation of Rydberg states of potassium atoms with principal quantum numbers n > 18. To demonstrate this we perform two-photon spectroscopy on ultracold potassium gases in which we observe an electromagnetically induced transparency resonance corresponding to the 35s1/2 state and verify the long-term stability of the laser system. Additionally, by performing spectroscopy in a magneto-optical trap we observe strong loss features corresponding to the excitation of s, p, d and higher-l states accessible due to a small electric field.

Figures (6)

Fig. 1
Fig. 1 Schematic overview of the laser system and potassium level scheme used for two-photon Rydberg excitation. (a) The laser system consists of a Titanium-Sapphire laser and resonant-cavity second harmonic generation (SHG). To improve the frequency stability the Ti:Sa laser is locked to a reference cavity which in turn is stabilized to an absolute frequency via Doppler free spectroscopy of 39K atoms. (b) Level scheme of the two-photon excitation of potassium to Rydberg ns and nd states. The laser system presented in here corresponds to the upper transition(s) around 460 nm.
Fig. 2
Fig. 2 Performance of second harmonic generation (SHG). The top panel shows the SHG power as a function of the fundamental power at a wavelength of 456(912) nm, reaching a maximum power of 1.5 W for an input of 2.5 W of the fundamental light. The bottom panel shows the SHG efficiency which saturates at around 60% above 1 W input power. The solid lines correspond to a model for the electromagnetic field propagation inside a Fabry-Perot cavity. The inset shows a typical beam profile for the SHG cavity output beam.
Fig. 3
Fig. 3 Wavelength tuning range of the frequency doubled laser spanning from 455 – 463 nm with a nominal output power ≈ 1.5 W (upper panel). For each operating wavelength the optimal crystal temperature for phase matching must be found (lower panel). The inset shows the typical crystal temperature dependence of the output power for a second harmonic wavelength of 460.4 nm.
Fig. 4
Fig. 4 Relative intensity noise of the frequency doubled light over the bandwidth of 100 Hz to 5 MHz. The upper curve (green) corresponds to the laser intensity noise while the lower curve (purple) is the relative background noise level of the photodiode measured without incident light.
Fig. 5
Fig. 5 Frequency drift with and without cavity locking. An electromagnetically induced transparency (EIT) resonance for the 35s1/2 state of ultracold potassium provides a reference for monitoring the laser frequency stability over long time scales. (a) Peak optical density of the atomic gas under EIT conditions taken with the reference cavity locked to the 767 nm laser. (b) EIT spectra without drift compensation. (c) Center position of the EIT feature recorded over 80 minutes with (purple) and without (blue) drift compensation.
Fig. 6
Fig. 6 Rydberg loss spectrum of ultracold 39K atoms in a magneto-optical trap. (a) We identify allowed transitions of ns and nd states (from n = 77 to n = 85) plus resonances corresponding to np-states and the hydrogenic manifold l > 2 which are present due to a residual electric field. The vertical orange and gray lines are the energy position calculated from the quantum defects in ref. [51]. The spectrum is plotted around a wavelength of 455.6 nm. (b) Zoom in of a group of s, p, d and l > 2-states, showing the asymmetric line shapes.
