abstract

Optical frequency combs find applications in various areas of science and technology, such as time-frequency metrology, molecular spectroscopy, and ultra-low phase noise microwave and terahertz generation. A new method has recently been demonstrated for the generation of these combs, and it is based on the excitation of the whispering gallery mode of a high Q monolithic resonator through the Kerr effect. In this paper, we will discuss some of the key challenges in achieving octave spanning combs useful for optical metrology applications.
