Leveraging novel nonlinear devices for compact gigahertz frequency combs

This talk will summarize our recent work on compact gigahertz frequency combs based on SESAM- modelocked solid-state lasers carried out in the Ultrafast Laser Physics group at ETH Zurich.

A special emphasis will be placed on how to leverage novel chip-scale devices to enable nonlinear processes at very low pulse energies. Examples will include devices for intra-cavity processes such as femtosecond soliton formation in multi-gigahertz laser oscillators or extra-cavity nonlinear applications such as coherent supercontinuum generation and efficient optical parametric amplification to reach the mid-infrared spectral region.
