Laser frequency comb in astronomy research

Answering fundamental questions in astronomy such as the expanding universe theory, depend on the possibility of measuring the slow drift of cosmological redshifts which are inherent in any evolving universe. However, such an observation requires very high accuracy of the measured spectrograms since the expected redshifts are exceedingly small.  While modern telescopes might be able […]

Good luck to Laser Quantum employee in ‘company’ cycling event

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Last month we reported that Oliver Prochnow, in charge of R&D at Laser Quantum – Venteon, Germany, was competing in the German road cycling ‘company-facilitated’ championships. In preparation for the race, we spoke to Oliver about his passion for cycling and success so far. How and when did you get into cycling? I have always […]

Frequency comb metrology with an optical parametric oscillator

Read this new paper by K. Balskus et al. which reports on the first demonstration of absolute frequency comb metrology using an optical parametric oscillator (OPO). Absolute optical frequency metrology is widely done using a frequency comb where the repetition rate and the carrier envelope offset frequency is stabilised using an f-to-2f interferometer and locking […]
