Paper Abstract

We are investigating optical frequency comb generation by direct modulation of CW light. Our scheme is based on three cascaded modulators; one amplitude modulator and two phase modulators. The modulation scheme is optimized for flatness and power efficiency. A stable optical spectrum has been generated with ~100 comb lines with 0.625 GHz spacing and 3 dB flatness. We also investigate comb generation via phase only modulation.
