Microresonator-based frequency combs have attracted a great deal of attention in recent years. Traditional generation scheme could be slow due to the operation of tunable lasers and thermal effects. In some spectral ranges, it is also difficult to find a tunable laser with a certain tuning range. In this paper, we propose a fast and simple method for Kerr comb generation without laser detuning and local cooling. In this way, the generation time can be reduced to tens of nanoseconds, three orders of magnitude faster.
