The article reviews the generation of multiple optical carriers from a supercontinuum multicarrier source (SC-MCS). Advantages of SC-MCS include fixed channel spacing with microwave-oscillator (Hz) accuracy and the capability to generate a stream of more than 100 channels. In the future, SC-MCS will play a key role in applications such as WDM systems and optical frequency standards.
