ECE 616 Student Presentation: DualComb Spectroscopy
02 Mar 2012   Contributor(s):: Andrew J Metcalf
Dual comb spectroscopy is introduced, a technique that is basedon the beating of two frequency combs. A sample is first interrogated bythe combs before they are beat together via photodiode which down convertsthe signal from the optical to RF domain where it can be processed with electronics. A...
