Wideband Fiber-Interferometer Stabilization With Variable Phase
We report on a robust scheme for wideband variable-phase interferometer stabilization based on active modulation. In contrast to previous schemes, the correction signal is generated without using second harmonics, whose low amplitude often requires employing narrowband lock-in amplifiers. Resonances in the element modulating the phase are attenuated to enable high gain without high-frequency oscillations. Operation over a 3-kHz bandwidth is demonstrated.
