abstract

  • In this letter, an all-electronic method that provides a precise control over the number of spectral lines of an electro-optic frequency comb is presented and experimentally validated. This feature, in conjunction with the straightforward configuration of the optical resolution (repetition frequency) inherent to electro-optic combs, enables the generation of optical comb sources with the unique capability of a complete adaptability to the targeted spectral feature/s that could ultimately maximize the SNR of any electro-optic comb-based spectroscopic measurement.
