Paper Abstract

We describe a fiber-optics based system for the generation of optical frequency comb using amplified spontaneous emissions from a semiconductor optical amplifier as signal source. The continuous wave spectrum from the semiconductor optical amplifier range from 1480nm to 1680nm. A Solc-Sagnac birefringent interferometer filtered the continuous wave into a comb of descrete spectral lines with line spacing of 600GHz, producing comb signals than span 182 to 230 terahertz.
