Stable Turnkey Laser System for a Yb/Ba Trapped-Ion Quantum Computer

Journal Article (Journal Article)

This work presents a stable and reliable turnkey continuous-wave laser system for a Yb/Ba multispecies trapped-ion quantum computer. The compact and rack-mountable optics system exhibits high robustness, operating over a year without realignment, regardless of temperature changes in the laboratory. The overall optical system is divided into a few isolated modules interconnected by optical fibers for easy maintenance. The light sources are frequency-stabilized by comparing their frequencies with two complementary references: 1) a commercial Fizeau wavelength meter and 2) a high-finesse optical cavity. This scheme enables automatic frequency stabilization for days with a sub-MHz precision.
