Abstract

We propose and analyze a novel (to our knowledge) approach to implement the spectral self-imaging effect of optical frequency combs. The technique is based on time-domain multilevel phase-only modulation of a periodic optical pulse train. The method admits both infinite- and finite-duration periodic pulse sequences. We show that the fractional spectral self-imaging effect allows one to reduce by an integer factor the comb frequency spacing. Numerical simulation results support our theoretical analysis.
