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.

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.

The paper deals with the current state and the first experiments performed on a 232 km long cross-border phase-coherent line between ISI in Brno and BEV in Vienna. This line is the first operational segment of the planned network for mutual comparison of different types of optical atomic clocks between ISI (Ca +), BEV (Cs) and Atominstitut (Thorium) in Vienna. At all workplaces, local highly coherent lasers (spectral line width in the order of Hz or better) will be synchronized with the link output. This network of synchronized lasers will serve as a transfer medium for the mutual comparison of optical atomic clocks in individual laboratories.

The contribution reports on the current state of a 306km long experimental line for transfering stable optical frequency from a telecommunication band laser standard between ISI CAS (Brno) and CESNET (Prague). The bidirectional link uses a telecommunication fiber with a dedicated DWDM window of 1540-1546 nm.1540-1546 nm. In the Czech rep. this technology can be utilized currently in two fields: remote comparisons of optical frequency standards and remote callibration of instruments (optical spectral analyzers) in industrial applications that do not allow transporting the device to a specialized laboratory. The stability of the optical frequency transfer was evaluated. A long-term measurement of transport delay was conducted. \n

To verify the stability of the frequency of optical clock an intensive research in the transmission of stable frequency via optical fibers is in progress for many years. Interconnection of large cities and metropolitan networks with optical fiber running DWDM allowing to transfer many optical signals in parallel over one fiber at the same time contributes significantly to troubleshoot the problem. Between nodes of ISI Brno and the main center of CESNET there are several dedicated bi-directional channels through the DWDM technology. The first tests are ongoing with the transfer of accurate time, which are using the possibility of bi-directional communication over a single fiber, thus the phase delay including Doppler shift are reflected on the two signals as well. From periodic measurements can subsequently be evaluated daily, weekly and seasonal fluctuations of the delay and after deduction of such data from the measured data a mutual stability of used time normal can be determined. The second technique is a full compensation of phase of the laser wave through active control of phase changes of the wave during its transmission from the ISI to the node of CESNET. At present, a characterization of the behavior of individual system elements, including their commissioning is in progress.
Time and frequency transfer in all-optical network
Smotlacha, V. ; Kuna, Alexander
This paper describes usage of all-optical network for time metrology application - Time and frequency transfer between two geographically distant sites. Although several approaches exist, there is no production implementation yet. Our method is based on newly developed adapters utilizing channels in a DWDM (Dense Wavelength-Division Multiplexing) network. We present results of tests performed in real production all-optical network including the time transfer between atomic clocks in Prague and Vienna over more than 500 km long optical path
Optical infrastructure for time and frequency transfer
Smotlacha, V. ; Vojtěch, J. ; Kuna, Alexander
The paper describes optical infrastructure for time and frequency transfer in the Czech republic. The infrastructure is heterogeneous and utilises resources of the Czech academic optical network. It allows to interconnect Cesium standards in distant sites with the national time and frequency laboratory and to distribute accurate time and stable frequency. We also present results and compare them with other methods of time transfer
