Frequency Stabilization of 421.671 nm Second-Harmonic Generation for Studies of 88 Sr+ Ions Confined in an RF Trap

  • Iku Hirano

The frequency of a SHG of a high power laser diode has been stabilized to the 5s2S1/2#x2212;5p2P1/2 transition of 88Sr#x002B; at 421.671 nm using the differential detection of the absorption signal of a hollow-cathode lamp. The frequency fluctuation never exceeded 10 MHz. The fluorescence signal of 88Sr#x002B; ions was detected.
