Optical fiber/microfiber based high Q-factor resonators: theory and experiment

Postprocessing of an optical fiber by melting and drawing allows one to fabricate different types of miniature optical devices, e.g., micro/nanofibers and high Q-factor microsphere resonators. In this talk I briefly review these devices highlighting an adiabatic micro/nanofiber taper, microfiber loop resonator, microfiber coil resonator, as well as microbottle, microbubble, and microcylinder resonators.

Bio

Dr. M. Sumetsky graduated from St. Petersburg State University, Russia (1975) and has Ph.D. (1979) and D.Sc. (1989) degrees from the same University. In 1979 he joined the Physics Department of St. Petersburg University of Telecommunications and since 1995 worked at the Bell Labs, Lucent Technologies. After transition of the Optical Fiber Research Department of Bell Labs into the OFS Labs of the Furukawa Electric Company in 2001, he joined the OFS Labs. Dr. Sumetsky has more than 150 publications in optics and quantum mechanics. He is widely acknowledged as one of the pioneers of research in optics of micro/nanofibers and microresonators.
