Abstract

In this paper, we introduced an every-single-shot carrier envelope (CE) phase locking setup, which was applied to measure and stabilize the CE phase drift in a 10 kHz, 10 W regenerative amplifier system. Using independent slow and fast control loops, the residual root mean square (RMS) CE phase noise was stabilized at the level of 200 mrad as measured by spectrometer based f-to-2f interferometer.
