Abstract

A comparison between microwave and optical frequencies by an ultrafast mode locked laser comb broadened with a photonic-crystal fiber was presented. Control of the comb frequency for improving the measurement precision was discussed. The frequency interval between the fundamental and second harmonic of an iodine stabilized Nd:YAG laser was measured for this purpose.
