We present a novel optical comb generation technique based on the use of a multi-harmonic electrical signal for driving the MZM. The proposed scheme is highly power efficient and gives rise to square shaped combs of advanced flatness and side mode suppression ratio while maintaining a stable performance over a long time period.
