Abstract

An elongated bottle microresonator with nanoscale parabolic effective radius variation can possess a series of dense equally spaced optical eigenfrequencies whose separation can match the eigenfrequency of its axially symmetric acoustic mode. It is shown that this acoustic mode can parametrically excite optical modes and give rise to a highly equidistant and moderately broadband optical frequency comb with the teeth spacing independent of the input laser power and the amplitude of mechanical vibrations.
