Abstract

We describe a new technique for incoherent optical frequency domain spectroscopy (I-OFDS) that does not require measurements of the RF phase spectrum in order to reconstruct the optical spectrum. It is based on the addition of either an optical or electronic reference line to the I-OFDS system. Compared to the spectrum acquired by a regular I-OFDS system, high accuracy (error<1%) is predicted and achieved.
