SMV-2023-40: Characterization of sources and optical elements of coherent optics and use for commercial devices
Holá, Miroslava ; Řeřucha, Šimon ; Pravdová, Lenka ; Čížek, Martin
The contract research was focused on the characterization of the laser source. The characterization of the laser source was divided into two parts. The first part was focused on characterizing the optical frequency of the laser source for at least 100 hours with a resolution better than 100kHz. The second part concerned the zero-drift characterization of a common-path differential interferometer. It was a measurement of interference phase fluctuations during the reflection of interferometer arm beams on a common mirror (zero-drift) lasting at least 100 hours with a resolution better than 1 nm for a pair of differential interferometers with simultaneous measurement of atmospheric parameters.
SMV-2023-39: Controller for the distance measuring probe
Holá, Miroslava ; Řeřucha, Šimon ; Čížek, Martin ; Pavelka, Jan ; Hucl, Václav
Measurements using a laser interferometer are among the most accurate types of distance measurements. In order to achieve this goal, it is necessary not only to have a precise laser source and an interferometer but also a controller, which ensures the correct recording and reading of the experimental data. The contract research „Controller for a distance measuring probe“ was focused on the realization of such a controller. The controller contains several service modules which ensure correct recording and reading of measured data and several related accessories. It reads and records data from a laser interferometer and also from a module which records atmospheric data necessary for the measured distance determination.

Řeřucha, Šimon ; Holá, Miroslava ; Lazar, Josef ; Mikel, Břetislav ; Číp, Ondřej
Continuous efforts to develop dimensional measurements at both the nano- and macro-scale continue to present challenges in extending high-precision measurement procedures from the well-controlled experimental environment of a typically single measurement cycle to a constant-load production environment. In the field of laser interferometry, which is both a cornerstone of length metrology in general and an essential part of nanometrology, we have focused on long-term measurement stability (so-called zero-drift) in measurement scenarios and applications based on (mostly laser) interferometry. A well-characterized and compensated measurement zero-drift in such applications becomes more important both with applications in less controlled environments and with increasing measurement timeframes, such as long scans in microscopic nanometrology, long exposures in electron lithography, or interferometric reference calibrations with a larger number of calibration points or repetitions. The goal of the current research effort is to comprehensively investigate error effects and contributions to measurement uncertainty related to zero-drift in laser interferometry-based applications, with a particular focus on temperature effects (as these typically appear to be the dominant contribution) and approaches to suppress them. This effort involves several complementary directions.

One of the main limitations in the long-term measurement of the clock transition's absolute frequency is the magnetic field's fluctuation. The time-varying fluctuation of the external magnetic field leads to frequency shifts of the Zeeman components, thereby reducing the optical clock's frequency stability over time. Currently, optical atomic references are usually implemented with the help of a single ion. However, scaling the number of ions to higher values brings an indisputable benefit in the form of a high signal-to-noise ratio and, thus to the efficiency of the entire measurement process. In this case, the ions are spread over a large area, forming so-called ionic Coulomb crystals. In addition to the spatial stability of the magnetic field, the homogeneity of the magnetic field is also significant when working with Coulomb crystals. Excessive magnetic perturbation can be greatly reduced by covering the assembly with a magnetic shield or by using permanent magnets instead of conventionally used magnetic coils. Another method is averaging over multiple-level transitions. This contribution presents a simple method for measuring the stability of the magnetic field at the ion position.
System for scanning hydrogen cyanide absorption lines
Hošek, Martin ; Řeřucha, Šimon ; Hrabina, Jan ; Čížek, Martin ; Pravdová, Lenka ; Číp, Ondřej
The definition of both meter and second relies on precisely measured frequency. The convenient sources of such frequencies are lasers stabilized by molecular vapours. The He-Ne lasers stabilized by iodin vapours represent the cornerstone sources in the visible spectrum. On the other hand, the infrared spectrum (particularly the 1550 nm C-band) is of metrological interest thanks to its cost-effective, readily available components. The widely used absorption media at 1550 nm has been two acetylene isotopes (12C2H2, 13C2H2), while H13C14N represents an alternative covering a wider spectrum well corresponding to the telecommunication C-band. The 2ν3 rotational-vibrational band had been investigated, but due to the use of not-so-precise methods, the presented data feature high uncertainty compared to acetylene data. We represent methods that will lead to precise assessments of hydrogen cyanide's absorption line centres with the potential to introduce HCN to Mise en Pratique, making it an internationally recognized source of precise frequency for the realization of traceable laser etalons.
SMV-2022-38: Characterization of sources and optical elements of coherent optics and use for commercial devices
Holá, Miroslava ; Řeřucha, Šimon ; Pravdová, Lenka ; Čížek, Martin
The contract research was focused on the characterization of the flatness of the optical elements and the characterization of the laser source. The optical elements were characterized using a Zygo interferometer. The characterization of the laser source was divided into two parts. The first part was focused on characterizing the optical frequency of the laser source for at least 100 hours with a resolution better than 100kHz. The second part concerned the zero-drift characterization of a common-path differential interferometer. It was a measurement of interference phase fluctuations during the reflection of interferometer arm beams on a common mirror (zero-drift) lasting at least 100 hours with a resolution better than 1 nm for a pair of differential interferometers with simultaneous measurement of atmospheric parameters.

Vojtěch, J. ; Smotlacha, V. ; Havliš, O. ; Šlapák, M. ; Altmannová, L. ; Kundrát, J. ; Vohnout, R. ; Velc, R. ; Čížek, Martin ; Hrabina, Jan ; Řeřucha, Šimon ; Pravdová, Lenka ; Lazar, Josef ; Číp, Ondřej ; Kuna, Alexander ; Roztočil, J.
Fibre optics transfers of precise time and ultra-stable optical frequency are gradually becoming part of portfolio of network services of research and educational networks. These national infrastructures very often share fibres with regular data transmission, because of significant share of fibre cost rental on the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO). Situation is very similar in the Czech Republic, where there was more than 3000 km of ultra-stable transmissions within Czech e-Infrastructure, which itself runs over about 5800 km of dark fibre lines.
Highly-coherent laser for precise optical frequencies dissemination
Pravdová, Lenka ; Čížek, Martin ; Hrabina, Jan ; Jelínek, Michal ; Řeřucha, Šimon ; Mikel, Břetislav ; Lazar, Josef ; Havliš, O. ; Altmannová, L. ; Smotlacha, V. ; Vojtěch, J. ; Velc, R. ; Číp, Ondřej
The paper presents a multipurpose laser with a very narrow spectral line, operating at a wavelength of 1540 nm and designed for cooled ions spectroscopy and the dissemination of precise optical frequencies over optical fibre links. The optical frequency of a commercial single-mode laser (NKT Photonics Koheras Basik) is spectrally narrowed to the level of several Hz using a high-quality optical resonator as an optical reference and an acousto-optic modulator as an active control element. The optical resonator is made of a low length thermal expansion coefficient material and is placed in a multi-shell vacuum chamber providing a stable operating environment. Optical frequency stabilisation uses PDH (Pound-Drewer-Hall) modulation and detection technique.
Laser spectroscopy and absorption spectra of HCN
Hošek, Martin ; Hrabina, Jan ; Řeřucha, Šimon ; Pravdová, Lenka ; Lazar, Josef ; Číp, Ondřej
Hydrogen Cyanide (specifically isotope H13C14N) has significant potential as an absorption medium for the frequency stabilised lasers’ realisation because its absorption spectrum covers the whole telecommunication C-band (1530-1565 nm). The broad absorption spectrum can be used not only for calibration of optical telecommunication devices but also for modern interferometric methods that are useful for measuring macroscale objects (e.g., FSI - frequency scanning interferometry). Our research aims to precisely characterise the profile of HCN’s spectral lines and determine the optical frequency of absorption lines’ corresponding centres.
