Localized dissipative structures (LDS) have been predicted to display a rich array of instabilities, yet systematic experimental studies have remained scarce. We have used a synchronously-driven optical fiber ring resonator to experimentally study LDS instabilities in the strong-driving regime of the AC-driven nonlinear Schr\"odinger equation (also known as the Lugiato-Lefever model). Through continuous variation of a single control parameter, we have observed a string of theoretically…

Origin, bifurcation structure and stability of localized states in Kerr dispersive optical cavities

Localized coherent structures can form in externally driven dispersive optical cavities with a Kerr-type non-linearity. Such systems are described by the Lugiato–Lefever (LL) equation, which

Phase and intensity control of dissipative Kerr cavity solitons

ABSTRACT Dissipative Kerr cavity solitons are pulses of light that can persist in coherently driven nonlinear optical resonators. They have attracted significant attention over the past decade due to

Highly-Chirped Solitons in Driven Resonators

Here we investigate driven fiber resonators with large net normal dispersion and a narrowband intracavity spectral filter. A range of stable solutions are observed, including the first experimental

Theory of Cavity Solitons

The existence and dynamical and other properties of cavity solitons are reviewed. These are bright, stable, non-diffracting spots of light in a driven optical cavity. The cavity must contain a
