frequency comb sources

Laser Quantum’s taccor comb consists of a 1-GHz turn-key Ti:sapphire laser with a matched dispersion compensation module, supercontinuum generation and ultra-stable f-to-2f interferometer. It provides an electrical output signal at the carrier–envelope offset (CEO) frequency with at least 40 dB signal-to-noise ratio in 100 kHz bandwidth. The supercontinuum generation fibre coupling is stable for long periods.

frequency comb sources

TOPTICA’s Difference Frequency Comb (DFC) is a compact, robust, high-end solution featuring turn-key operation in a 19 inch format. The patented CERO technology uses difference frequency generation for an all-optical phase-lock of νCEO. Thanks to its intrinsic stability, the DFC is the number one choice for anyone looking for high-end performance combined with a high level of robustness.

frequency comb sources

Alpes Lasers offers mid-IR frequency combs centred around 6 μm or 8 μm. The QCL comb is a stand alone device as it integrates the pump laser and the microcavity in its waveguide contrarily to other comb technologies. This makes it a very compact comb source. Being based on QCL technology, comb devices can be manufactured over all the MWIR and LWIR.
