Microresonators produce broad spectrum frequency combs with applications in spectroscopy

micro_resonator-sA chip-based device can generate a laser signal with frequencies spaced in a comb-like fashion. In general, light and water waves alike stretch out and dissipate as they move further and further away from their source. However, there is a type of wave that maintains its shape as it propagates: solitons.
