Broadband molecular spectroscopy with optical frequency combs

Author
Abstract
Over the past dozen years, optical frequency combs have evolved into valuable tools for broadband molecular spectroscopy. They have already enabled remarkable advances for the measurement of complicated molecular spectra by improving the resolution, accuracy, sensitivity, and measurement times of spectrometric approaches. In this feature article, we trace some recent developments relevant to high-resolution spectroscopy of molecules, especially in the mid-infrared spectral region. We discuss examples that harness the emerging techniques of cavity-enhanced frequency comb spectroscopy and dual-comb spectroscopy and we conclude with a perspective of forthcoming opportunities and challenges.
