Abstract

We combined a tunable continuous-wave optical parametric oscillator and a femtosecond Ti:sapphire laser frequency comb to provide a phase-coherent bridge between the visible and the mid-infrared spectral ranges. As a first demonstration of this new technique we performed a direct frequency comparison between an iodine-stabilized Nd:YAG laser at 1064nm and an infrared methane optical frequency standard at 3.39μm.
