Paper Abstract

Kerr frequency combs in optical passive microresonators promise new breakthroughs in photonics. Such combs result from multiple hyper-parametric four-wave mixing processes when reaching a threshold of modulational instability. These combs however have chaotic nature. It was revealed in recent experiments, theoretical and numerical analysis that transition form these chaotic states to highly ordered states associated with dissipative Kerr solitons is possible. In this report we discuss theoretical approaches to analyze these soliton states and reveal methods of reliable transition to single soliton states. Latest experimental results with soliton combs are reported.
