Abstract

Time-resolved, high-accuracy and high-resolution spectroscopy of rapidly tuned cw lasers is critical to realizing their full potential for sensing, but is not possible with conventional spectrometers. We demonstrate a coherent dual-comb-based spectrometer capable of measuring the instantaneous frequency of cw optical waveforms up to chirp rates of 1500 THz/s over a span of 5 THz with time-bandwidth limited precision. Provided there is a brief (
