Microresonator based Frequency Comb Generators

Objetivo

Optical frequency combs have revolutionized optical frequency metrology in just a few years. They have made it possible to directly count light field oscillations of several 100 million cycles per second. Traditionally they have been created with mode locked ultra short pulse lasers. In this project we propose to investigate frequency comb generation based on monolithic micro resonators. As recently demonstarted by the consortium they can create combs with a conveniently high mode spacing suitlable for many different applications. The scientific objective of the collaboration is to develop micro resonators based frequency combs using silica on chip micro resonators and crystalline micro resonators and test them in two applications, as a reference oscillator and as a calibration tool for spectrographs. The partners are the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne (Switzerland) and Menlo Systems GmbH in Germany.
