After many presentations at CLEO on Kerr frequency combs, microcombs, microresonator frequency combs, dissipative Kerr solitons, Kerr solitons, nonlinear effects in integrated optics and the like, here are the new written contributions of the last two weeks:
The majority of Kerr frequency comb experiments is done in fiber optics. And because typically single mode fiber is used the polarization has to be adjusted at some points. This is typically done with a Fiber Polarization Controller (FPCs). And of course this has to be included also in the experimental layouts in the publications. Here is a brief review of different shapes that FPCs can take in this context.
CLEO 2019 is starting today and CLEO has been traditionally a conference where many fresh results on Kerr frequency combs have been presented. This is also true for this year’s edition. Here is a summary of this year’s program. There are a few sessions dedicated to this topic but many more presentations and posters are scattered throughout other sessions as well.
