 Project objective

Femtosecond laser GHz cavity lasers has enabled a new type of optical frequency comb that have defined a new standard and a universal method for precisely measuring optical frequencies measuring. This quantum leap in metrology unravelled numerous technological innovations, from more precise atomic clocks to unprecedented data-transmission flowrate in telecoms. So far, optical frequency-comb systems remain table-top size and expensive, an impediment for further adoptions of this major technological break-through.

Here, we propose a novel concept of monolithic, miniaturized – matchbox size - femtosecond laser GHz cavity, in which all the optical functions are integrated in a same substrate, including active functions requiring active tuning or electro-optics effects. This concept relies on femtosecond laser machining combined with post-processing methods to fabricate this optical cavity and to perform the fine alignment required for proper laser operation. It defines a new paradigm where ‘a femtosecond laser is used to fabricate and tune another femtosecond laser’.

Specifically, GigaFemto aim at 1/ demonstrating the first all-in-glass femtosecond GHz cavity, of matchbox size, fabricated and tuned by another femtosecond lasers and 2/ laying the seeds for a commercial exploitation by a spin-off company of our laboratory. The later will include a market analysis and a thorough precompetitive study.

Are you the coordinator (or a participant) of this project? Plaese send me more information about the "GIGAFEMTO" project.

For instance: the website url (it has not provided by EU-opendata yet), the logo, a more detailed description of the project (in plain text as a rtf file or a word file), some pictures (as picture files, not embedded into any word file), twitter account, linkedin page, etc.

Send me an  email (fabio@fabiodisconzi.com) and I put them in your project's page as son as possible.

Thanks. And then put a link of this page into your project's website.
