Quantum-limited optical time transfer for future geosynchronous links

June 21, 2023
Emily Caldwell, Jean-Daniel Deschenes, Jennifer Ellis, William C. Swann, Benjamin Stuhl, Hugo Bergeron, Nathan R. Newbury, Laura Sinclair
The combination of optical time transfer and optical clocks opens up the possibility of large-scale free-space networks that connect both ground-based optical clocks and future space-based optical clocks. Such networks promise better tests of general

Impact of Strong Atmospheric Turbulence on Two-Way Optical Time Transfer

May 8, 2023
Laura Sinclair, Emily Caldwell, Jean-Daniel Deschenes, Hugo Bergeron, William C. Swann, Nathan Newbury
Frequency comb based optical time transfer can provide femtosecond-level timing which will support future clock networks. However, for long-distance terrestrial links, non-reciprocal atmospheric turbulence induces a timing penalty. Here, we quantify this

The time-programmable frequency comb and its use in quantum-limited ranging

October 27, 2022
Emily Caldwell, Laura Sinclair, Nathan R. Newbury, Jean-Daniel Deschenes
Two decades after its invention, the frequency comb is an unparalleled ruler for frequency, time, and distance metrology due to the rigid spacing of its optical output. Here, in contrast, we demonstrate a programable frequency comb by combining self

Ultra-low Power Dual Frequency Comb Ranging

June 30, 2022
Emily Caldwell, Laura Sinclair, Jean-Daniel Deschenes, Nathan R. Newbury
Dual comb ranging is a well-established method of laser-based ranging that exploits frequency combs to provide absolute, high-precision measurements. It suffers, however, from a significant power penalty when compared with conventional FMCW LIDAR. Here, we

Time Programmable Frequency Comb

May 15, 2022
Emily Caldwell, Laura Sinclair, Nathan R. Newbury, Jean-Daniel Deschenes
We demonstrate a programmable optical frequency comb that emits coherent pulses with user-specified time and phase at sub-10 attosecond accuracy while maintaining the underlying referenced stability characteristic of combs.

Photon Efficient Optical Time Transfer

April 24, 2022
Emily Caldwell, Laura Sinclair, William C. Swann, Nathan R. Newbury, Benjamin Stuhl, Jean-Daniel Deschenes
We present a novel frequency comb-based system for optical two-way time-frequency transfer to support very long distance free-space links between clocks. Our Photon-Efficient Agile Comb Optical Clock Synchronization (PEACOCS) system supports sub
