SC3: Supercontinuum and Frequency Combs: Fundamental Physics and Applications
Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd.
Recent progress in supercontinuum and frequency combs sources has revolutionized many sciences and engineering areas, including astronomy, spectroscopy, metrology, communications, optical computing, etc. The broadband and coherent sources with octave-spanning spectrum enable f-2f self-referenced fceo locking. Development of emerging nonlinear platforms such as microstructured fibers and large bandgap photonic chips enable supercontinuum and frequency combs generation in extended spectral bands, i.e. mid-infrared, visible, and ultraviolet regions, where conventional lasers are unavailable due to lacking appropriate gain medium.
This session focuses on the recent advances in novel physical mechanisms and applications of supercontinuum and frequency combs. Topics include, but are not limited to, supercontinuum generation in microstructured fibers and micro/nano photonic chips. Chip platforms with large bandgap are of particular interests; Kerr frequency combs generation and manipulation in microresonators and fiber cavities; nonlinear pulse shaping; applications of frequency combs on trace-gas sensing, dual-comb spectroscopy, LIDAR, radio-frequency photonics, and artificial intelligence photonics.
