Solitons are generated in ultra-high-Q disk resonators

Solitons are self-reinforcing waves that are studied widely in physics. Femtosecond time scale soliton pulses have been generated in silica micro resonators. The solitons are emitted from the microresonator in periodic streams at a repetition frequency that is readily detected.
