Electrically driven photonic integrated soliton microcomb (W1C.1)
8:00 AM - 8:15 AM
We demonstrate via self-injection locking an electrically driven soliton microcomb by coupling a multi-frequency laser diode to a chip-scale high-Q Si3N4 microresonator. This approach offers a pathway for an integrated and ultra-compact microcomb source for high-volume applications e.g. coherent telecommunication and data-center interconnects.

Ultralow-power chip-based soliton microcombs for photonic integration (W1C.2)
8:15 AM - 8:30 AM
Using the photonic Damascene reflow process, we present single soliton formation in 99-GHz-FSR silicon nitride microresonators of Q-factor exceeding 15 million, with less than 10 mW optical power.

New Insights on Modulation Instability in Optical Fibers (W1C.3)
8:30 AM - 9:00 AM Invited
We provide the first longitudinal characterization in phase and amplitude of the nonlinear stage of Modulation Instability in optical fibers by means of a heterodyne optical time domain reflectometer. This original setup allows to report the symmetry breaking of the process due to an initial condition change.

Wide-Band Intermodal Wavelength Conversion in a Dispersion Engineered Highly Nonlinear FMF (W1C.4)
9:00 AM - 9:15 AM
We demonstrate wide-band (>40-nm in C+L-bands) intermodal wavelength conversion of 24.5-GBaud QPSK, 16- and 64-QAM signals with <1-dB OSNR penalty, using a newly designed highly nonlinear few-mode fiber with similar chromatic dispersion profiles amongst modes.

Ultra-Broadband Bragg Scattering Four Wave Mixing in Silicon Rich Silicon Nitride Waveguides (W1C.5)
9:15 AM - 9:30 AM
We show the first demonstration of Bragg scattering inter-modal four-wavemixing in silicon-rich SiN waveguides. We report wavelength conversion using two spatial modes, exhibiting a maximum efficiency of -15-dB over a flat-bandwidth in excess of 30-nm.

3D Shape Sensing Utilizing SBS in Multi-core Fiber (W1C.7)
9:45 AM - 10:00 AM
3D shape sensing utilizing stimulated Brillouin scattering in multi-core fiber is experimentally demonstrated. A 1.7-m helical curve can be reconstructed with a RMSE of 0.0200 m when the spatial resolution is 20 cm.
