Abstract

Modulation of a laser frequency with a negligibly small residual amplitude modulation component has been demonstrated with a piezoelectric transducer-driven mirror. The vibrating-mirror method has been successfully applied to high-resolution spectroscopy of saturated absorption and to laser-frequency stabilization. The bandwidth of the stabilization feedback loop as wide as 15 kHz has been achieved to suppress acoustic noise in ordinary laboratory environment.
