Applications based on optical frequency combs have rapidly grown in diverse areas of science and engineering, including chemical sensing, timekeeping, distance ranging, searching for exoplanets and as a source for wavelength-division multiplexing in data communications. Recent work has shown that chip-based nonlinear photonics offers the prospect of realizing comb devices in highly compact, portable, robust and fully integrated form factors that could make their use ubiquitous for a broad range of environments. Join the OSA Integrated Photonics Technical Group for a webinar with Alexander Gaeta, Columbia University, describing recent work on Kerr-comb generation and supercontinuum generation for producing broadband optical frequency combs in chip-based photonic platforms.
