Paper Abstract

We propose optical frequency comb generation in a monolithic micro-ring resonator. Being different from the previously reported nonlinear optical frequency combs, our scheme is based on more efficient quadratic frequency conversion rather than the third-order nonlinearity. To overcome the phase mismatch, a partly poled nonlinear ring is employed. Cascading second harmonic generation and parametric down conversion processes thus are realized through quasi-phase matching (QPM). Coupling equations are used to describe the related nonlinear interactions among different whispering-gallery modes, showing some interesting characteristics that are different from conventional QPM technology.
