Abstract

Optical microcoil resonators (OMRs) fabricated by wrapping a microfibre around a rod to allow evanescent coupling between adjacent turns as in Fig 1. (a) have recently attracted much interest due to their high Q-factor and large extinction ratios resonances, low input and output coupling losses, large evanescent field and compactness [1,2], with applications such as sensing [3] and signal processing [4]. However, theoretical models published so far have neglected polarisation effects, and hence in order to develop a more detailed understanding we have modelled the OMR with polarisation-dependent coupled mode equations in the linear [5] and nonlinear regimes.
