We demonstrate numerically the possibility of generation of vector platicons having orthogonally polarized components by the modulated pump at normal GVD. Dynamics of this process can be controlled by pump polarization and depends on both the spectral interval between pumped modes and the difference of their FSRs. We also show the possibility of the excitation of the hybrid solitonplaticon complexes if pumped modes have alternating signs of the GVD coefficient. © 2021 The Author(s)

Generation of platicons and frequency combs in optical microresonators with normal GVD by modulated pump

We demonstrate that flat-topped dissipative solitonic pulses, “platicons”, and corresponding frequency combs can be excited in optical microresonators with normal group velocity dispersion using

Frequency combs and platicons in optical microresonators with normal GVD.

The existence of a novel type of the flat-top dissipative solitonic pulses, "platicons", in microresonators with normal group velocity dispersion (GVD), is predicted and methods to generate these platicons from cw pump are proposed.

Coexistence of cavity solitons with different polarization states and different power peaks in all-fiber resonators.

It is shown that, for a wide range of parameters, there is a coexistence between a homogeneous steady state and two different types of temporal vector cavity solitons, which can be hosted in the same system.

Orthogonally polarized frequency comb generation from a Kerr comb via cross-phase modulation.

We experimentally demonstrate that a single microresonator can emit two orthogonally polarized individually coherent combs: (i) a strong polarized soliton comb and (ii) an orthogonally polarized

Mode interaction aided excitation of dark solitons in microresonators constructed of normal dispersion waveguides

Kerr frequency combs from microresonators are now extensively investigated as a potentially portable technology for a variety of applications. Most studies employ anomalous dispersion microresonators

Generation and properties of dissipative Kerr solitons and platicons in optical microresonators with backscattering.

It is shown that while the impact of the nonlinear coupling on the generation of the bright solitons is rather weak, it is significantly more pronounced for the platicon excitation process.

Coexistence of dark vector soliton Kerr combs in normal dispersion resonators

We investigate the formation of dark vector localized structures in the presence of nonlinear polarization mode coupling in optical resonators subject to a coherent optical injection in the normal

Coupled Lugiato-Lefever equation for nonlinear frequency comb generation at an avoided crossing of a microresonator

Guided-mode coupling in a microresonator generally manifests itself through avoided crossings of the corresponding resonances. This coupling can strongly modify the resonator local effective

Dark-Bright Soliton Bound States in a Microresonator.

Dissipative Kerr solitons in microresonators have facilitated the development of fully coherent, chip-scale frequency combs. In addition, dark soliton pulses have been observed in microresonators in

Dynamics of Dispersive Wave Emission From Dark Solitons in Kerr Frequency Combs

Taking advantage of an extended Lugiato-Lefever equation with third-order dispersion, we numerically show that dark cavity solitons formed in normal dispersion of microresonators are capable of
