Abstract

We experimentally demonstrate generation of high-intensity short optical pulses obtained by the controlled ultrafast release of the stored energy confined in silicon microcavities. This is achieved using ultrafast tuning of the coupling from a coupled-ring cavity to an external waveguide on time scales shorter than cavity photon lifetime.
