Temporal Laser cavity-Solitons for micro-resonator based optical frequency combs

Project description

Developed micro-combs for time precision tools

Time precision is critical for advanced technologies that depend on frequency and time standards such as the Internet and GPS. However today precision is still limited blocking the progress towards revolutionary technologies. Optical atomic clocks that are based on optical frequency combs emerge as the only solution that can provide time precision up to 10^ (-18) seconds and the production of such clocks on a portable scale is considered as a game-changer. However practical atomic clocks require accurate optical sources and depend on massive pulsed lasers that are not reliable for portable applications. The EU-funded TeLSCombe project proposes a plan based on the most advanced technology for developing micro-combs with control abilities above the existing miniature solutions.
