Fabrication and modeling of truncated oblate and prolate microresonators
We have demonstrated softening and micromorphing techniques of amorphous/crystalline materials for fabricating high quality oblate or prolate microresonators. Firstly, "soften-and-compress" technique has been developed for fabricating bottle microresonators from standard fibers or capillaries using splicers. Also, a "soften-and-squash" technique has been demonstrated for fabricating microdiscus resonators by squashing microspheres between glassy-carbon plates. Finally, a softening process was developed for turning crystalline microstructures into predominantly oblate microresonators. We have also developed an efficient transfer-matrix method for calculating resonant frequencies and field distributions in truncated oblate and prolate structures and applied it to analyze resonant characteristics of the new microresonators.

Abstract

We have demonstrated softening and micromorphing techniques of amorphous/crystalline materials for fabricating high quality oblate or prolate microresonators. Firstly, "soften-and-compress" technique has been developed for fabricating bottle microresonators from standard fibers or capillaries using splicers. Also, a "soften-and-squash" technique has been demonstrated for fabricating microdiscus resonators by squashing microspheres between glassy-carbon plates. Finally, a softening process was developed for turning crystalline microstructures into predominantly oblate microresonators. We have also developed an efficient transfer-matrix method for calculating resonant frequencies and field distributions in truncated oblate and prolate structures and applied it to analyze resonant characteristics of the new microresonators.
