Enable precision optical frequency measurements
Precision and accuracy are critical in metrology and frequency comb generation. In a world where OEMs need to deliver faster throughput whilst maintaining the same level of reliability in 24/7 output; laser systems are becoming increasingly popular. The accuracy is critical as many decisions will be made on whether there are possible contaminants or not, therefore, any false-positives will lead to increased wastage and costs.
On the other hand, frequency combs enable precision optical frequency measurements much in the same way as a ruler is used to measure a distance. They serve in many laboratories worldwide to perform fundamental physics experiments such as measurements of the drift of fundamental natural constants. They are used to perform massively parallel precision optical spectroscopy or to synthesize microwave signals with unprecedentedly low phase-noise. Frequency combs also support the development of novel superior optical atomic clocks, by functioning as their clockwork, which may eventually lead to such practical advances as more precise GPS navigation.
