Abstract:
Dissipative Kerr soliton frequency combs generated in high-Q microresonators may unlock novel perspectives in a variety of applications and crucially rely on quantitative models for systematic device design. Here, we present a global bifurcation study of the Lugiato-Lefever equation which describes Kerr comb formation. Our study allows systematic investigation of stationary comb states over a wide range of technically relevant parameters. Quantifying key performance parameters of bright and dark-soliton combs, our findings may serve as a design guideline for Kerr comb generators.
