Optical frequency comb is known as an optical-frequency-ruler, an inevitable tool for precision measurements mainly used for fundamental science. The laser shows its remarkable potential not only for the precision measurements but also for a variety of applications including broadband molecular spectroscopy. Among broadband frequency comb spectroscopy, dual-comb spectroscopy has proved its ultrafast measurement speed with high precision and accuracy. A million-fold shorter measurement has been demonstrated over the conventional Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR). With the unprecedented measurement speed, this noble method can pave the way for new molecular science and diagnosis.


In this webinar hosted by the Nonlinear Optics Technical Group, Dr. Takuro Ideguchi from the University of Tokyo will present basics of dual-comb spectroscopy and will introduce recent research activities.
