We demonstrate a new, simple technique for measuring IR frequencies near 30 THz by using a femtosecond (fs) laser optical comb and sum-frequency generation. The optical frequency is directly compared with the distance between two modes of the fs laser, and the resultant beat note is used to control this distance, which depends only on the repetition rate of(More)
–A spectrometer for ultra high-resolution spectroscopy of molecular iodine at wave length 501.7 nm, near the dissociation limit is described. Line shapes about 30 kHz wide (HWHM) were obtained using saturation spectroscopy in a pumped cell. The frequency of an Ar + laser was locked to a hyperfine component of the R(26)62-0 transition and the first absolute(More)
