Paper Abstract

This paper discusses use of optical frequency combs generated by modelocked semiconductor lasers for coherent photonic signal processing applications. Key in our approach is a high Q cavity, supermode suppression and low spontaneous emission. Targeted applications of the stabilized optical frequency combs lie in areas of metrology, optical sampling, arbitrary waveform generation and communications using coherent detection.
