  • Both the group velocity and phase velocity of two solitons can be synchronized by a Kerr-effect mediated interaction, causing what is known as soliton trapping. Trapping can occur when solitons travel through single-pass optical fibers or when circulating in optical resonators. Here, we demonstrate and theoretically explain a new manifestation of soliton trapping that occurs between counter-propagating solitons in microresonators. When counter-pumping a microresonator using slightly detuned… CONTINUE READING
