We measured the Amplitude Modulation response of the PZTs, to find regions with large phase modulation but small amplitude modulation.
We did this by blocking 1 arm of the PLL, feeding the source output of the Network Analyzer into the PZT input of the laser in question, and reading the output of the PD on the NA. We calibrated by dividing by the DC voltage of the PD (scaled by the ratio of the AC gain to DC gain of the New Focus PD).
The AM response of the Innolight looks fairly smooth up to ~1MHz, and it is significantly below the PM response for most of its range. The region between 20 and 30 kHz shows very good separation of about 10^3 rad/RIN (and up to 10^5 rad/RIN at ~21.88 kHz, where there is the negative spike in the AM response). The region between 1.5 MHz and 2MHz also looks viable if it is desirable to actuate at higher frequencies.
The Lightwave offers very good AM/PM separation up to about 500 kHz, but becomes quite noisy about 1MHz.
