Theory of quadratic optical frequency combs
Paper in proceedings, 2016

We present theoretical studies of optical frequency comb generation in dispersive quadratically nonlinear resonators. We introduce a mean field equation approach to model cavity enhanced second harmonic generation and find excellent agreement with recent experimental frequency comb observations. We also develop a more general approach based on a single envelope equation for both quadratic and Kerr nonlinear cavities. © 2016 IEEE.
