Abstract
An absolute-frequency terahertz (THz) dual-frequency comb spectrometer based on electro-optic modulators for tunable, high-resolution, and real-time rapid acquisition is presented. An optical line of a master frequency comb (filtered via optical injection locking) serves as the seed to electro-optically generate a pair of new frequency combs (probe and local oscillator). Photomixing both combs with another coherent line from the same original master comb generates a narrow linewidth THz dual-comb with teeth frequencies that can be referenced to a radio-frequency standard. The system is validated with a proof-of-principle measurement of a microwave filter in the W-band.
