Abstract

Cavity resonant enhanced stimulated Raman scattering (SRS), four-wave mixing, and broadband hyper-parametric oscillation in silica microbubble whispering gallery mode resonators (WGMR) in forward and backward directions are reported in this Letter. We show that microbubbles can operate not only in a highly ideal two-photon emission regime, but also generate combs, both natively and multi-mode spaced. The nonlinear process is phase matched because of the interaction of different mode families of the resonator.
