Photonic Chip based Frequency Combs

TOBIAS J. KIPPENBERG

Full Professor

Swiss federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne(EPFL)

Abstract:

The development of optical frequency combs, and notably self-referencing, has revolutionized precision measurements over the past decade, and enabled counting of the cycles of light. Frequency combs, have enabled dramatic advances in timekeeping,metrology and spectroscopy. In 2007, it was discovered that such combs can also be generated using an optical microresonator using parametric frequency conversion. Importantly, such Kerr combs also enable to generate dissipative temporal solitons (DKS), which are formally solutions to a driven dissipative nonlinear Schr?dinger equation, termed Lugiato-Lefever equation–first derived to describe spatial self-organization phenomena.DKS have unlocked the full potential of Kerr combs enabling a deterministic route to broadband, and coherent optical frequency combs, whose bandwidth can be enhanced using soliton broadening phenomena, such as Soliton Cherenkov Radiation. Such Solitons Kerr combs on a chip have enabled to realize counting of the cycles of light, realize dual comb spectrometers on a chip, enabled dual comb based ultrafast ranging, massively parallel coherent communication, and offered a novel approach to massively parallel FCMW LiDAR. Recent advances based on the photonic damascene processenable ultra low loss nonlinear photonic circuits based on silicon nitride (Si3N4), have enabled ultra-low losses, and direct integration with on chip pump lasers. On the fundamental side, new and theoretically not previously predicted dynamics has been observed ranging from formation of soliton crystals, soliton switching, and new type of breather solitons, and emergent nonlinear dynamics in arrays of coupled resonators.Soliton Kerr frequency combs thereby are providing a highly fruitful new playground for fundamental nonlinear science and applications alike.

Biography:

Tobias J. Kippenberg is Full Professor in the Institute of Physics and Electrical Engineering at EPFL in Switzerland since 2013 and joined EPFL in 2008 as Tenure Track Assistant Professor. Prior to EPFL, he was Independent Max Planck Junior Research group leader at the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics in Garching, Germany. While at the MPQ he demonstrated radiation pressure cooling of optical micro-resonators, and developed techniques with which mechanical oscillators can be cooled, measured and manipulated in the quantum regime that are now part of the research field of Cavity Quantum Optomechanics. Moreover, his group discovered the generation of optical frequency combs using high Q micro-resonators, a principle known now as micro-combs or Kerr combs.

For his early contributions in these two research fields, he has been recipient of the EFTF Award for Young Scientists (2011), The Helmholtz Prize in Metrology (2009), the EPS Fresnel Prize (2009), ICO Award (2014), Swiss Latsis Prize (2015), as well as the WilhelmyKlung Research Prize in Physics (2015), the 2018 ZEISS Research Award and 2020 OSA R. Wood Award. Moreover, he is 1st prize recipient of the "8th European Union Contest for Young Scientists" in 1996 and is listed in the Highly Cited Researchers List of 1% most cited Physicists in 2014-2019. He is founder of the startup LIGENTEC SA, an integrated photonics foundry.
