Direct Frequency Comb Spectroscopy-A

Direct frequency comb spectroscopy was first developed in JILA (Science '04). Its cavity-enhanced version (Science '06) has allowed for powerful combinations of broad spectral coverage, ultrahigh spectral resolution, ultrahigh detection sensitivity, and massively parallel detection channels. This new form of spectroscopy is now finding applications ranging from breath analysis, trace monitoring, to fundamental molecular dynamics research.
