Title: Fiber lasers for frequency standards in optical communications
Published: February 24, 2008
Abstract: Optical light with millihertz relative frequency stabilities and subfemtosecond timing jitter can be produced from stabilized cw or mode-locked fiber lasers. We will discuss the generation, fiber-optic distribution and some applications of these coherent sources.
