Paper Abstract

We describe a monolithic frequency comb generator. Using four-wave mixing enhanced by the high-Q optical modes of a microresonator, a continuous wave laser is converted into an optical frequency comb, whose equidistant mode spacing is verified to a precision better than 1 part in 1017. Balance of geometric and material dispersion allows to flatten dispersion and to create combs spanning 500 nm in the 1550 nm band. Moreover, scaling of this approach to microwave repetition rates is described.
