Nonlinear Optics with Microresonators

Part of the Optical Sciences book series (SSOS, volume 138)

The previous chapters were concerned with the fundamental linear optical properties of microresonators. In this section, we examine mechanisms whereby the coherent buildup of intensity and increased interaction length can enhance the nonlinear or intensity-dependent optical properties of microresonators. As we shall see, such enhancements can lead to all-optical functionalities in an ultra-compact geometry.
