Description

Special features make the M-Comb oscillator (250 MHz repetition rate, 100 MHz on request)  the ideal core component of versatile optical frequency comb systems with improved performance. The multiple optical output ports of the oscillator can be amplified, and by subsequent frequency conversion, the NIR and the VIS spectral ranges are simultaneously available for precision measurements.

The high repetition rate of the M-Comb model entails larg spacing between the comb modes, which ensures easy and straightforward measurements, and provides high optical power per comb mode.

The orange-Comb (250 MHz repetition rate, 100 MHz on request) is the Yb counterpart.
