Abstract

Optical frequency combs (FCs) have revolutionised ultra-high precision metrology by providing a link between optical and microwave frequencies [1]. While FCs are traditionally used for calibrating a CW probe-laser, also direct frequency comb spectroscopy (DFCS) is possible. We have recently demonstrated the versatility of DFCS performed in the environment of an ion trap, combining the broad spectral range of a Ti:sapphire FC with the feasibility of trapping and (sympathetic) cooling of different ion species [2].
