Optical Frequency Combs

Optical frequency combs have revolutionized precision optical systems since their discovery 20 years ago and the discovery was awarded the 2005 Nobel Prize in physics. Due to the physics of the light generation process, the spacing between the colors in terms of frequency is identical to an extraordinary level, making a ruler for light. MicroR has developed a compact photonic integrated approach to generate optical frequency combs. MicroR can provide combs with a broad range of comb line spacings well suited for applications in telecommunications, LIDAR, RADAR, and quantum technologies
