We present a new approach to nonlinear optical effects in microresonator systems, based on period-doubling bifurcations near nonlinear cavity anti-resonance, and apply it to low-power optical comb generation in a silicon chip.

Continuous-wave, visible emission from a silica microresonator on silicon by third harmonic generation is demonstrated. Emission is observed with pump powers <300 muW. This result opens the

Frequency comb formation and transition to chaos in microresonators with near-zero dispersion.

We investigate the frequency comb formation in microresonators with near-zero dispersion, study the route from integrability to chaos in the corresponding nonlinear system, and demonstrate the key

Optical frequency comb generation from a monolithic microresonator

This work reports a substantially different approach to comb generation, in which equally spaced frequency markers are produced by the interaction between a continuous-wave pump laser of a known frequency with the modes of a monolithic ultra-high-Q microresonator via the Kerr nonlinearity.

Nonlinear Fiber Optics

Nonlinear fiber optics concerns with the nonlinear optical phenomena occurring inside optical fibers. Although the field ofnonlinear optics traces its beginning to 1961, when a ruby laser was first
