Kerr-stabilized super-resonant modes in coupled-resonator optical waveguides.


We investigate the effects of the optical Kerr nonlinearity in a coupled-resonator optical waveguide (CROW). Under certain conditions, there exists a stationary spatial distribution of the field whose envelope does not change with time-a super-resonant mode. The analysis does not indicate the existence of traveling hyperbolic-secant solitons of the Schr… (More)
