Abstract

We report that unidirectional lasing emission can be generated from a rounded isosceles triangular microcavity within a low nkD range, where n is the refractive index, k is the vacuum wave number, and D is the characteristic size of the microcavity. It is shown that unidirectional resonance modes have relatively high-Q values and in a nonlinear dynamic model appear as stationary lasing solutions with a low threshold. The formation of a whispering-gallery-type pattern along the rounded part on the symmetry axis is responsible for the unidirectionality of the resonances.
