Mid-IR frequency comb upconversion spectroscopy



Todd Johnson, Scott A. Diddams


We present a mid-infrared frequency comb generated via differency frequency mixing of a Yb femtosecond fiber laser. After passing through a methane gas sample, the MIR comb is upconverted and dispersed onto a CCD for detection.
