Columbia engineers build smallest integrated Kerr frequency comb generator


October 8, 2018

Optical frequency combs can enable ultrafast processes in physics, biology and chemistry, as well as improve communication and navigation, medical testing and security. Columbia University engineers have built a Kerr frequency comb generator that, for the first time, integrates the laser with the microresonator, significantly shrinking the system's size and power requirements.
