Recent experiments have shown that light coupled to atoms in the Rydberg state can be used to realize effective photon-photon interactions [1]. Thus they can act as a single photon source with well-controllable properties [2]. Key element for this result is Electromagnetically Induced Transparency (EIT). The narrow EIT resonance width required for the realization of effective photon-photon interactions demands very narrow laser linewidths.

Here we present a commercial stabilization system based on a Fabry-Pérot cavity from Stable Laser Systems, which will allow to achieve linewidths of the order of few kHz for both 780nm and 960nm wavelengths. Key elements are the precise temperature stabilization of the high finesse cavity inside the vacuum housing as well as a very stable DDS based AOM system for frequency-locking [3].
