We present results from several experiments in which the repetitive, coherent nature of stabilized mode-locked pulse trains are utilized. From absolute optical frequency measurements in ultracold Sr atoms to the coherent storage and amplification of optical pulse trains in high-finesse Fabry-Perot cavities, the stabilized femtosecond laser has become an indispensable tool in precision spectroscopy and ultrafast science.
