    Abstract

    Kerr comb generation in a coupled mode system is of interest, because it supports dual-comb generation and can initialize modulation instability gain even in a normal dispersion cavity. This talk will describe how linear and nonlinear mode coupling affect Kerr comb generation. In particular, we model and study soliton trapping in a coupled mode system, and also discuss in detail how the coupling strength affects the generation of a Kerr comb in a normal dispersion system.
