Whispering Gallery Mode Resonator
Application ID: 90741
Dielectric microspheres can support whispering gallery modes with high optical quality factors. This model illustrates how to compute the different eigenmodes and resonance frequencies. The resonance frequencies are either filtered by their spatial localization in the resonator or by comparing the losses of the bound modes and the, for this application undesired, air modes.
This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
however, additional products may be required to completely define and model it. Furthermore, this example may also be defined and modeled using components from the following product combinations:
The combination of COMSOL® products required to model your application depends on several factors and may include boundary conditions, material properties, physics interfaces, and part libraries. Particular functionality may be common to several products. To determine the right combination of products for your modeling needs, review the Specification Chart and make use of a free evaluation license. The COMSOL Sales and Support teams are available for answering any questions you may have regarding this.
