David R. Walker, Deniz D. Yavuz, Miroslav Y. Shverdin, Guang-Yu Yin and Stephen E. Harris

To optically control atomic and molecular processes, it must be possible to shape the optical waveform with a high level of precision. This involves maximizing the number of phase-adjustable frequencies. The authors demonstrate a technique to multiplicatively increase the number of generated frequencies through the use of modulators in series.
