Pedro publishes detailed bifurcation study of localized light pulses in optical resonators

Pedro has studied the origin, stability, and bifurcation structure of different types of bright localized structures described by the Lugiato-Lefever equation. This mean field model describes the nonlinear dynamics of light circulating in fiber cavities and microresonators. In this work, published in Phys. Rev. E , we show how the organization (bifurcation structure) of these localized light patterns critically changes as one increases the cavity detuning, one of the important experimental control parameters in the system.
