Whispering Gallery Mode (WGM) resonators have very high intrinsic Q-values and are thus an excellent candidate for passive compact laser stabilization. An Erbium-doped fiber loop laser was stabilized by incorporating a microsphere into the loop. Environmental control of the cavity allows for precise and continuous tuning over a few GHz.
