Abstract

Optical filtering of a stabilized 1GHz optical frequency comb produces a 20GHz comb with 40nm bandwidth (FWHM) at 960nm. Use of a low-finesse Fabry–Pérot cavity in a double-pass configuration provides a broad cavity coupling bandwidth (Δλλ10%) and large suppression (50dB) of unwanted modes. Pulse durations shorter than 40fs with less than 2% residual amplitude modulation are achieved.
