Abstract

We demonstrate a self-referenced, octave-spanning modelocked Ti:sapphire laser with a tunable repetition rate (550 MHz – 1.3 GHz). We use the frequency comb output of the laser, without additional broadening in optical fiber, to stabilize the laser offset frequency and for measurements against atomic optical standards at 534 nm, 578 nm, 563 nm and 657 nm.
