Abstract

A new type of multi-port optical microfiber resonator is presented. The coupler-based coil resonator was fabricated by coiling a four port microfiber coupler around a low index support rod and then embedding the resulting device in a low refractive index polymer to improve its robustness. In this structure, light propagates along the coil whilst the beating between the supermodes of the coupler still present, giving an increased extinction ratio and an output spectrum strongly dependent on the microfiber coupler diameter.
