Broadband phase spectroscopy over turbulent air paths

Fabrizio R. Giorgetta, Greg B. Rieker, Esther Baumann, William C. Swann, Laura C. Sinclair, Jonathan Kofler, Ian R. Coddington, Nathan R. Newbury
Broadband atmospheric phase spectra are measured at sub-milliradian uncertainty corresponding to a 10-13 refractive index change, despite strong decoherence

Frequency-Comb-Based Remote Sensing of Greenhouse Gases over Kilometer Air Paths

Greg B. Rieker, Fabrizio R. Giorgetta, William C. Swann, Jonathan Kofler, Alexander M. Zolot, Laura C. Sinclair, Esther Baumann, Christopher L. Cromer, G. Petron, Colm Sweeney, P P. Tans, Ian R. Coddington, Nathan R. Newbury
We demonstrate frequency comb tooth-by-tooth measurements of atmospheric gas absorption across a 2-km, turbulent, open-air path through coherent dual-comb

Open-Path Dual-Comb Spectroscopy of Greenhouse Gases

Greg B. Rieker, Fabrizio R. Giorgetta, William C. Swann, Ian R. Coddington, Laura C. Sinclair, Christopher L. Cromer, Esther Baumann, Alexander M. Zolot, Nathan R. Newbury
Frequency-comb spectroscopy in the near-infrared is used to measure atmospheric CO2 and H2O concentrations over a 2-km outdoor open-air path. This technique

Precision metrology with coherent dual frequency combs

Nathan R. Newbury, Esther Baumann, Ian R. Coddington, Fabrizio R. Giorgetta, Greg B. Rieker, Laura C. Sinclair, William C. Swann, Alexander M. Zolot
Frequency combs have enabled a wide range of applications because of their unique combination of coherence and broad bandwidth. The comb provides 100,000's of
