Abstract

Compact optical frequency comb sources with gigahertz repetition rates are desirable for a number of important applications including arbitrary optical waveform generation and direct comb spectroscopy. We report the generation of phase-locked, gigahertz repetition rate optical frequency combs in a chalcogenide photonic chip. The combs are formed via the interplay of stimulated Brillouin scattering and Kerr-nonlinear four-wave mixing in an on-chip Fabry–Perot waveguide resonator incorporating a Bragg grating. Phase-locking of the comb is confirmed with real-time measurements, and a chirp of the comb repetition rate within the pump pulse was observed. These results represent a significant step towards the realization of integrated optical frequency comb sources with gigahertz repetition rates.

Fig. 1.

(a) Illustration of BFC generation via the interplay of SBS and Kerr-nonlinear FWM (P, pump laser). (b) Schematic of the experiment. OSA, optical spectrum analyzer; PD, photodiode; RT-Scope, real-time oscilloscope.

Fig. 2.
Fig. 2.

Spectral measurements. (a) Input pump light (P) coupled into the resonator. (b) Normalized transmission spectrum of the Bragg grating. (c) Output spectra: with grating enhancement (solid blue line) revealing several Stokes waves (1S–4S) and anti-Stokes waves (1AS–3AS), and without grating enhancement (red dotted line). (a) and (c) were measured with an OSA (resolution 10pm), and (b) was measured with a swept wavelength system (resolution 1.3pm).

Fig. 3.

Temporal measurements of the BFC (sampling rate, 80GSa/s; bandwidth, 33 GHz). (a) Eleven output pulses generated by coupling eleven 300 ns input pump pulses into the waveguide with 0.5 ms delay. (b) 1 ns long zoomed-in section at 70 and 280 ns of all 11 traces shown in (a) (the traces have been shifted in time for better visibility).

RF spectra of the BFC obtained via FFT of the temporal measurement shown Fig. 3. (a) RF spectrum of one entire quasi-CW output pulse. (b) Zoomed-in sections at νB and 2νB of RF spectra of 70 ns long intervals of one quasi-CW output pulse centered around 55 ns (black, squares), 125 ns (red, dots), 195 ns (blue triangles pointing up), and 265 ns (magenta, triangles pointing down), illustrating the increase of the comb repetition rate on a nanosecond time scale.
