Abstract

We analyze a mode-locked regime in Kerr frequency combs generated in nonlinear microresonators. Using damped driven nonlinear Schrödinger equations we show that the combs can produce subpicosecond optical pulses when the resonators are characterized with a small enough anomalous group velocity dispersion. We provide an analytical solution of the problem for the case of small damping.
