Abstract

Optical filtering of a stabilized 1 GHz optical frequency comb produces a 20 GHz comb with 40 nm bandwidth (FWHM) at 960 nm . Use of a low-finesse Fabry–Pérot cavity in a double-pass configuration provides a broad cavity coupling bandwidth ( Δ λ λ 10 % ) and large suppression ( 50 dB ) of unwanted modes. Pulse durations shorter than 40 fs with less than 2% residual amplitude modulation are achieved.
