Recent developments have shown a strongly growing interest in the application of optical frequency combs (OFC) to high-speed optical and RF-photonics signal processing. For example, highly stable OFCs have been recently employed, besides massively parallel communications, for other advanced functions such as nonlinear impairment mitigation, high-purity microwave signal generation, optical beamforming, all-optical Fourier transformation, sensing, and more. The scope of this panel session is to provide a focused overview on recent advances on this topic and its multiple applications to all-optical processing and microwave photonic subsystems.
