Reducing the linewidth of fiber-laser frequency combs

Published

Author(s)

Nathan R. Newbury, John J. McFerran, William C. Swann

Abstract

Fiber laser-based frequency combs typically exhibit broad optical linewidths, particularly in the wings. These broadened linewidths originate from white amplitude noise on the pump laser, which can be eliminated to achieve sub-Hz offset frequency linewidths.
