Synchronization of coupled optical microresonators
The phenomenon of synchronization occurs universally across the natural sciences and provides critical insight into the behaviour of coupled nonlinear dynamical systems. It also offers a powerfulExpand
High-order coherent communications using mode-locked dark-pulse Kerr combs from microresonators
The first coherent-transmission experiments using 64-quadrature amplitude modulation encoded onto the frequency lines of a dark-pulse comb are reported, providing the first demonstration of coherent wavelength division multiplexing using dark pulse microresonator combs high signal-to-noise while maintaining a low on-chip pump power.

Observation of Arnold Tongues in Coupled Soliton Kerr Frequency Combs.
A newfound degree of flexibility in synchronizing Kerr combs across a wide range of comb spacings is illustrated and could find applications in time and frequency metrology, spectroscopy, microwave photonics, optical communications, and astronomy. Expand
Microresonator-based solitons for massively parallel coherent optical communications
This work exploits the scalability of microresonator-based DKS frequency comb sources for massively parallel optical communications at both the transmitter and the receiver, and demonstrates the potential of these sources to replace the arrays of continuous-wave lasers that are currently used in high-speed communications.

Investigation of mode coupling in normal-dispersion silicon nitride microresonators for Kerr frequency comb generation
Kerr frequency combs generated from microresonators are the subject of intense study for potential applications ranging from short pulse generation to frequency metrology to radiofrequency signalExpand
Generation of a coherent near-infrared Kerr frequency comb in a monolithic microresonator with normal GVD.
Generation of a wide, fundamentally phase-locked Kerr frequency comb in a nonlinear resonator with a normal group velocity dispersion (GVD) is demonstrated and the relative phase of the generated harmonics are fixed. Expand
Narrow-linewidth lasing and soliton Kerr microcombs with ordinary laser diodes
Narrow-linewidth lasers and optical frequency combs generated with mode-locked lasers have revolutionized optical frequency metrology. The advent of soliton Kerr frequency combs in compactExpand
Passive all-optical synchronization for polarization-maintaining mode-locked fiber lasers.
The implemented synchronous laser system could find immediate applications such as pump-probe microscopy, two-color spectroscopy and nonlinear frequency mixing. Expand
Origin and stability of dark pulse Kerr combs in normal dispersion resonators.
We analyze dark pulse Kerr frequency combs in optical resonators with normal group-velocity dispersion using the Lugiato-Lefever model. We show that in the time domain the combs correspond toExpand
Dynamics of mode-coupling-induced microresonator frequency combs in normal dispersion.
It is shown that mode coupling can initiate intracavity modulation instability (MI) by directly perturbing the pump-resonance mode, and the applicability of the analysis to the possibility of broadband comb generation in the normal GVD regime is discussed. Expand
