Abstract

We explore the scope for engineering dispersion in whispering gallery mode silica microbubbles for nonlinear applications, such as optical frequency comb generation. In particular, the zero dispersion wavelength is shown to be highly tunable by changing the thickness of the shell. Using a small diameter and small wall thickness, dispersion equalization within the visible is predicted. This opens up the possibility of realizing visible frequency combs for a range of different applications.
