Whispering Gallery Mode Resonator

Application ID: 90741

Dielectric microspheres can support whispering gallery modes with high optical quality factors. This model illustrates how to compute the different eigenmodes and resonance frequencies. The resonance frequencies are either filtered by their spatial localization in the resonator or by comparing the losses of the bound modes and the, for this application undesired, air modes.

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
