Abstract

We report a method to control, disrupt, and restore a regime of unidirectional soliton generation in a bidirectionally pumped ring microresonator. This control, i.e., the soliton blockade, is achieved by tuning the pump frequency of the counterrotating field. The blockade effect is correlated with the emergence of a dark–bright nonlinear resonance of cw states.
