Optical frequency combs, with their ultra-broad spectra and ultra-high spectral precision,
have revolutionized the art of frequency metrology in the optical domain. Their potential
impact on science and technology however extends far beyond precision frequency
measurement. In this presentation, I will introduce some of the applications of the combs
we are interested in and present our latest progress toward building a fiber-laser-based
frequency comb.
