Fourier Domain Mode Locking (FDML): Spectral mode locking in optics and applications

"Fourier Domain Mode Locking" (FDML) represents a new operation regime of lasers. Not the amplitude or phase, but the spectrum is modulated, complementary to standard mode locked lasers. A sequence of clean optical frequency sweeps is generated, which have the potential to be compressed to a train of ultrashort laser pulses. An entire sweep is optically stored within the cavity. FDML has the potential to revolutionize biomedical imaging in optical coherence tomography (OCT), overcome limitations of pulsed lasers and offer new possibilities in spectroscopy. In spite of the fact that fully operational prototypes do already exist, the mechanism of FDML itself is hardly understood yet. Goal of the project is a complete theoretical understanding of FDML to investigate experimental limitations and problems and to do research on possible applications of FDML in biomedical imaging and spectroscopy.
