Residual stability of a fiber-based frequency comb



William C. Swann, Ian R. Coddington, Luca Lorini, Jason Stalnaker, J. C. Bergquist, Scott Diddams, Nathan R. Newbury


Abstract: We present measurements of the residual frequency stability across a fiber frequency comb by comparison through a Ti:sapphire frequency comb. We find 6 x 10-17 stability at one second and 1 x 10-18 at 1000 seconds.
