|Title:||Spectral and temporal characterization of a fused-quartz-microresonator optical frequency comb|
|Published:||November 17, 2011|
|Abstract:||We report on the fabrication of high Q fused quartz microresonators and the generation of a frequency comb with 36 GHz mode spacing using them. We have characterized the intrinsic stability of the comb in both the time and frequency domains. Intensity autocorrelation measurements and line-by-line comb control reveal near-transform-limited picosecond pulses associated with good relative phase and amplitude stability of the comb lines. With access to the comb‰s repetition rate at 36 GHz, we have also measured the microcomb‰s intrinsic and absolute phase ﬂuctuations.|
