Fabrication and characterization of optically emissive microresonators
MetadataShow full item record
Microresonators are devices that confine light in small volumes through total internal reflection. Introducing an emissive species into a microresonator allows for resonance enhanced emission at frequencies where the spectrum of the emissive species overlaps with the resonant frequencies of the microresonator. Previous research has led to a good understanding of these phenomena in 1D and 2D microresonators, but many 3D microresonator geometries have not yet been investigated. This work details the successful creation and demonstration of a cubic polymeric optical microresonator.
