Selective excitation of spheroidal whispering gallery modes and bottle modes in a robust bottle microresonator fabricated straightforwardly from a short section of optical fiber is demonstrated. Characteristic resonance spectra of long-cavity bottle modes were obtained by using a tapered fiber to excite evanescently bottle microresonator at different points along its axis.

Abstract

Selective excitation of spheroidal whispering gallery modes and bottle modes in a robust bottle microresonator fabricated straightforwardly from a short section of optical fiber is demonstrated. Characteristic resonance spectra of long-cavity bottle modes were obtained by using a tapered fiber to excite evanescently bottle microresonator at different points along its axis. Compared to bare-fiber cylindrical resonators, the bottle microresonator results in a 35x increase of the observed Q factor.
