Ab initio description of nonlinear dynamics of coupled microdisk resonators with application to self-trapping dynamics

By Hamidreza Ramezani, Tsampikos Kottos, Vladimir Shuvayev and Lev Deych


Ab initio approach is used to describe the time evolution of the amplitudes of whispering gallery modes in a system of coupled microdisk resonators with Kerr nonlinearity. It is shown that this system demonstrates a transition between Josephson-like nonlinear oscillations and self-trapping behavior. Manifestation of this transition in the dynamics of radiative losses is studied.Comment: 10 pages, 5 figures, accepted for publication in Phys. Rev.
