About

The Flexcomb is a key-switched bench-top module producing a flexible optical frequency comb source which is based on our patented gain switching technology. It offers a flat comb of coherent wavelengths with low optical linewidth and tuneable central wavelength spacing. It produces 8 – 25 comb lines and a free spectral range (FSR) of up to 26 GHz.
