Abstract

A waveguide is bridged between two metallically hybrid microdisks for achieving nonlocal optical processing. The whispering gallery mode (WGM) is split into two modes, one is intrinsic WGM and the other is oscillating mode (OM) whose photons oscillate between two microdisks through the waveguide. The characteristics of OM on the waveguide’s width and length are studied. The results show the fundamental WGM oscillation only happens at certain lengths and widths of the waveguide, and strong optical interaction between two microdisks is accompanied by a high-loss waveguide. The optical processing through a waveguide between two individual resonators or photon producers may be applied to dynamic control on the photon states.
