Abstract

A phase-locked, all-fiber supercontinuum source based on an ultrashort fiber ring laser with a tunable repetition frequency is presented. The supercontinuum output comprises a frequency comb with a spacing set by the laser repetition rate and an offset set by the carrier-envelope offset frequency. The laser repetition rate can be scanned over 0.5 MHz while the offset frequency remains phase-locked to a stable RF source.
