An All-Fiber, Phase-Locked Supercontinuum Source for Frequency Metrology



Brian Washburn, Jeffrey W. Nicholson, M. Yan, C. G. Jorgensen, Scott Diddams, Nathan R. Newbury


A phase-locked IR frequency comb is produced by an all-fiber supercontinuum source based on an amplified mode-locked Erbium fiber laser and highly nonlinear, dispersion-shifted fiber. Stabilization of the carrier envelope offset frequency and repetition rate permit the comb to be phase-locked to an external RF source.
