Project: Calibration of spectrographs using microresonator-based frequency combs

Acronym COSMIC (Reference Number: 113569)
Duration 01/01/2020 - 03/01/2023
Project Topic We will develop a unique instrument for calibration of optical spectrographs and for verification of optical components, enabling precision spectroscopic measurements for a wide range of applications. Key innovations are a photonic chip based frequency comb offering a larger mode spacing at drastically lowered system complexity, cost and size and a frequency conversion technology enabling massive and highly efficient spectral broadening for unprecedented spectral coverage of the instrument.
