Dissipative Kerr solitons (DKS) generated in optical microresonators have attracted significant attention over recent years in the areas of optical frequency metrology, spectroscopy and coherent communication. DKS allow for fully coherent, high repetition rate broadband optical frequency combs (soliton combs) and provide access to stable ultrashort pulses of tunable duration. The formation process and the dynamics of such dissipative solitons strongly depend on the interplay of high-order nonlinear and thermal properties of the microresonator, and in many aspects significantly deviate from the behavior of solitons in optical fibers. This talk will focus on the fundamental principles of DKS dynamics, and cover the range of various unique phenomena discovered in such systems.

Conference Presentations are recordings of oral presentations given at SPIE conferences and published as part of the conference proceedings. They include the speaker's narration along with a video recording of the presentation slides and animations. Many conference presentations also include full-text papers.
