Molecular spectroscopy with frequency combs



Ian R. Coddington


Pulsed femtosecond frequency combs are rapidly developing as a powerful spectroscopic tool. As a spectroscopic source stabilized frequency combs potentially offer broad spectral coverage, near perfect frequency accuracy, low timing jitter and broadband compatibility with resonant cavities. This talk will focus on the first three advantages in a dual comb spectroscopic technique that is highly analogous to traditional Fourier transform spectroscopy.
