Abstract:Optical frequency combs are powerful tools for precise frequency measurements in various wavelength regions. The combs have been applied not only to metrology, but also to molecular spectroscopy. Recently, we studied high resolution spectroscopy of iodine molecule assisted by an optical frequency comb. \footnote{ A. Nishiyama, D. Ishikawa, and M. Misono, J. Opt. Soc. Am. B 30, 2107 (2013).} In the study, the comb was used for frequency calibration of a scanning dye laser. In this study, we developed a frequency calibration scheme with a comb and an acousto-optic modulator to realize more precise frequency measurement in a wide frequency range. And the frequency calibration scheme was applied to Doppler-free two-photon absorption (DFTPA) spectroscopy of naphthalene. Naphthalene is one of the prototypical aromatic molecules, and its detailed structure and dynamics in excited states have been reported. \begin{wrapfigure}{r}{0pt} \includegraphics[scale=0.5]{Figure.eps} \end{wrapfigure} We measured DFTPA spectra of $A^1B_{1u}$($v_{4}=1$) $\leftarrow$ $X^1A_g$($v=0$) transition around 298 nm. A part of obtained spectra is shown in the figure. The spectral lines are rotationally resolved and the resolution is about 100 kHz. The horizontal axis was calibrated by the developed frequency calibration system employing the comb. The uncertainties of the calibrated frequencies were determined by the fluctuations of the comb modes which were stabilized to a GPS-disciplined clock.
