Paper Abstract

Recently we demonstrated a technique to achieve the absolute calibration of a Fabry-Perot resonator used as a multi-frequency discriminator with evenly distributed reference values. These references are used to frequency-lock an ensemble of laser sources to precisely known values. We present in this paper a summary of the procedure that we established and discuss the frequency setting capability and the accuracy of such an optical frequency generator.
