Nonlinear conversion efficiency in Kerr frequency comb generation

Abstract

We analytically and numerically investigate the nonlinear conversion efficiency in ring microresonator-based mode-locked frequency combs under different dispersion conditions. Efficiency is defined as the ratio of the average round trip energy values for the generated pulse(s) to the input pump light. We find that the efficiency degrades with growth of the comb spectral width and is inversely proportional to the number of comb lines. It depends on the cold-cavity properties of a microresonator only and can be improved by increasing the coupling coefficient. Also, it can be increased in the multi-soliton state.
