Fiber lasers for frequency standards in optical communications

Published

Abstract

Optical light with millihertz relative frequency stabilities and subfemtosecond timing jitter can be produced from stabilized cw or mode-locked fiber lasers. We will discuss the generation, fiber-optic distribution and some applications of these coherent sources.
