Abstract

We demonstrate an octave-spanning, self-referenced optical frequency comb produced with a high-repetition-rate (frep=585 MHz) femtosecond Ti:Sapphire laser that requires less than 1 W of 532 nm pump power. The frequency comb was stabilized to a CW laser as required for optical clocks and low noise frequency synthesis. These results should be relevant for applications that require more-compact and efficient frequency combs.
