Secondary wavelength stabilization of unbalanced Michelson interferometers for the generation of low-jitter pulse trains

Abstract:
We present a double unbalanced Michelson interferometer producing up to 4 output pulses from a single input pulse. The interferometer is stabilized with the Hänsch-Couillard method using an auxiliary low power continuous wave laser injected into the interferometer, allowing the stabilization of the temporal jitter of the output pulses to 0.02fs. Such stabilized pulse trains would be suitable for driving multi-pulse laser wakefield accelerators and the technique could be extended to include amplification in the arms of the interferometer.
