We demonstrate a new technique to passively stabilize microresonator modes using an auxiliary laser. This enables the generation of soliton frequency combs at a record low threshold power of 780 microwatt.

Our paper on the dynamics of the interaction of counterpropagting light in microresonators has been published. This work has been done together with Gian-Luca Oppo and Lewis Hill at the University of Strathclyde.

We are organizing a special symposium on nonreciprocal photonics at CLEO2019 in San Jose (May 5th-10th 2019). Contributed submissions welcome! More information on the CLEO website.
Our work on microresonator-based optical isolators and circulators using the nonreciprocity of the Kerr effect has been published in Optica. https://doi.org/10.1364/OPTICA.5.000279
Leonardo Del Bino was rewarded with the Incubic/Milton Chang travel grant for his work on symmetry breaking of counterpropagating light in microresonators. The grant covers travel costs to this year’s CLEO conference in San Jose, CA USA. Congratulations Leonardo!
