Abstract
Based on a modal description of the evolution of the mode's amplitude in a whispering-gallery mode resonator, we numerically study the generation of Kerr combs. We show that a stable primary comb appear for pump power slightly above threshold, enabling potential applications in metrology. For high input power however, chaotic signals are observed.
