Droplet-induced optical resonator in a silica microcapillary

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access


We show that light circulating in a silica microcapillary can be fully localized by evanescent coupling to a water droplet forming a high Q-factor microresonator. The discovered phenomenon suggests an advanced method for microfluidics sensing.
