Abstract:

Optical frequency combs serve as the clockwork of optical clocks, which are now the best time-keeping systems inexistence. The use of precise optical time and frequency technology in various applications beyond the research lab remains a significant challenge, but one that integrated microresonator technology is poised to address. Here, we report a silicon-chip-based microresonator comb optical clock that converts an optical frequency reference to a microwave signal.
