Scholar.google.com took me straight to a copy. Of course, they wanted $41.00 for a PDF. That's cheap if you really need it.

Related to Frequency stabilized solid state lasers for coherent optical communication

What is a frequency stabilized solid state laser?

A frequency stabilized solid state laser is a type of laser where the frequency of the emitted light is locked to a specific, stable reference. This ensures that the laser maintains a consistent wavelength over time, which is crucial for applications requiring high precision and stability, such as coherent optical communication.

Why is frequency stabilization important in coherent optical communication?

Frequency stabilization is essential in coherent optical communication because it allows for the precise control of the laser's wavelength. This precision is necessary to ensure that the transmitted signal can be accurately detected and demodulated at the receiver end. Any frequency drift can lead to signal degradation, increased error rates, and reduced communication quality.

How is frequency stabilization achieved in solid state lasers?

Frequency stabilization in solid state lasers is typically achieved using feedback control systems. These systems often involve referencing the laser frequency to a stable optical cavity, atomic or molecular absorption lines, or using electronic control methods to correct any deviations. Techniques such as Pound-Drever-Hall locking or using a frequency comb can also be employed for high precision stabilization.

What are the advantages of using solid state lasers in coherent optical communication?

Solid state lasers offer several advantages in coherent optical communication, including high output power, good beam quality, and long operational lifetimes. They are also relatively compact and robust, making them suitable for integration into communication systems. Additionally, solid state lasers can be engineered to emit at specific wavelengths, which is beneficial for wavelength-division multiplexing (WDM) systems.

What are the challenges associated with frequency stabilized solid state lasers?

Challenges associated with frequency stabilized solid state lasers include the complexity and cost of the stabilization systems, the need for precise thermal and mechanical control to prevent frequency drift, and potential issues with long-term stability and reliability. Additionally, environmental factors such as temperature fluctuations and vibrations can impact the performance of the stabilization system, necessitating advanced engineering solutions to mitigate these effects.
