Abstract

We explore theoretically the phase correlation between multiple generated sidebands in a Raman optical frequency comb under conditions of spontaneous initiation from quantum zero-point noise. We show that there is a near-deterministic correlation between sideband phases in each laser shot which may lead to synthesis of attosecond pulse trains.
