    10.07.08 — Laboratory of Photonics and Quantum Measurements The first fully stabilized frequency comb generated in a monolithic microcavity has been demonstrated in our research group. The ability to stabilize the phase of microcavity frequency combs is the key step towards many applications in the fields of high-resolution spectroscopy and metrology. Moreover, we present larger scale fused silica "milli-toroids", generating combs with decreased repetition rates below 100 GHz that are amenable to direct detection with fast photodiodes.
