Abstract

We introduce a new stabilization scheme providing a pair of high-power, carrier-envelope-offset (CEO) frequency-stabilized, broadband, asynchronous frequency combs operating at 3.3 μm. The two channels, each with 100 mW average power and originating from a single synchronously pumped optical parametric oscillator, share all the components for midinfrared generation and CEO-frequency detection, and can be stabilized independently at repetition frequencies up to 5 kHz apart. This unique source is fully compatible with midinfrared dual-comb spectroscopy, and the approach can be readily extended to other wavelengths.
