ucd'a logoCNES logo Dr. Michel Lintz and his colleagues at the Université de la Côte d’Azur in Nice and the Centre National d’Études Spatiales in Toulouse have recently reported narrowing the linewidth of a DFB diode laser to 4 kHz using both feed back and feed forward techniques.  Dr. Lintz’ team used a Vescent Photonics D2-105 Laser Controller to drive the diode due to its low noise.

The full text of the article discussing the group’s work, published in Review of Scientific Instruments can be found here.  We thank Dr. Lintz for sharing this exciting work with Vescent Photonics and our community.
