Photonic solutions towards optical waveform synthesis

  • Francois Couny

Student thesis: Doctoral ThesisPhD


This thesis presents the development of photonic tools towards the realisation of an optical intensity waveform synthesiser and of an attosecond pulse synthesiser based on the generation and Fourier synthesis of a continuous-wave coherent spectral comb spanning more than 3 octaves (UV to mid-IR) by use of a gas-filled hollow core photonic crystal fibre (HC-PCF).
