Dual-comb-based characterization of rapidly tuned lasers



Fabrizio R. Giorgetta, Esther Baumann, Ian R. Coddington, William C. Swann, Nathan R. Newbury, Zeb W. Barber, Peter Roos


We demonstrate a technique to calibrate the instantaneous frequency versus time from a rapidly tuned cw laser. Our dual-comb-based spectrometer can measure optical waveforms tuned at 1500-THz/s rates over 5-THz bandwidths at high precision.
