Combining light modulation and frequency conversion techniques, a compact and simple frequency-stabilized optical frequency comb spanning over 45 nm in the 1.56- μm wavelength region is demonstrated. It benefits from the high-frequency stability achievable from rubidium atomic transitions at 780 nm probed in a saturation absorption scheme, which is transferred to the 1.56- μm spectral region...
