Abstract
We report on the stabilization of a semiconductor laser's frequency, using Rb absorption lines. In order to improve overall frequency stability within our system, we adjusted the setup used in Rb- saturated absorption spectroscopy, and optimized modulation parameters such as modulation - frequency and -width, to more accurately detect the error signal. When we stabilized laser frequency using a Doppler-free absorption line of Rb atoms, a time-constant of 0.01sec, and a modulation frequency of 7.77kHz, relative optical frequency stability of 2.12×10-12≤σ(2,τ)≤5.88×10-11 was achieved, in averaging time for 0.04s≤τ≤65s.
