Optical microdiscus resonators
We present a new "soften-and-squash" method for turning microspheres into high quality, stand-alone microdiscus resonators. Due to the annealing involved in the fabrication process, their measured Q factors are one order of magnitude better than the starting microspheres.

Abstract

We present a new "soften-and-squash" method for turning microspheres into high quality, stand-alone microdiscus resonators. Due to the annealing involved in the fabrication process, their measured Q factors are one order of magnitude better than the starting microspheres.
