1. A laser system, comprising:
a laser configured to generate a laser signal;
a frequency comb generator system configured to generate a frequency comb based on the laser signal, the frequency comb comprising frequency comb signals at respective comb frequencies;
a frequency comb dispersion system configured to spatially separate the frequency comb signals onto respective optical channels of the frequency comb dispersion system;
a frequency selector system configured to generate a selected frequency signal from the frequency comb signals after separation, the selected frequency signal comprising a target separated frequency comb signal; and
a frequency shifter configured to alter the selected frequency signal toward a target output frequency of the laser system.
