Thermal noise reduction in soliton microcombs via laser self-cooling

Abstract

Thermal noise usually dominates the low-frequency region of the optical phase noise of soliton microcombs, which leads to decoherence that limits many aspects of applications. In this work, we demonstrate a simple and reliable way to mitigate this noise by laser cooling with a pump laser. The key is rendering the pump laser to simultaneously excite two neighboring cavity modes from different families that are respectively red and blue detuned, one for soliton generation and the other for laser cooling.
