Multi-scale fibre-based optical frequency combs: science, technology and applications

Project description

Training network on optical frequency combs

An optical frequency comb is a very precise tool for measuring different frequencies of light. The technology, made possible by recent advances in ultrafast lasers, can accurately measure much higher frequencies than any other tool. Funded by the Marie Skłodowska Curie programme, the MEFISTA project will train six young researchers in the field. Researchers will conduct research on novel techniques for generating specialised laser waveforms, mid-infrared tuneable dual-comb sources, and manufacturing of mode-locked fibre lasers. Special focus will be placed on the use of frequency combs in laser radar/LIDAR in autonomous cars. The initiative will foster collaboration between academic and industrial partners, enriching EU research and innovation in optical frequency comb technologies.
