Abstract

We report a study on the performance limits of stabilized optical frequency combs from semiconductor mode-locked diode lasers. Operating characteristics such as the number of comb lines, comb tooth linewidth, the physical parameters that affect the independent control of pulse repetition rate and offset frequency, and the potential for self-stabilization, are explored.
