Abstract

The density of morphology-dependent resonances (MDR’s) of microspheres is shown to be larger than the density that is observed in typical resonance spectra and is large enough to be consistent with observations [ S.-X. Qian and R. K. Chang, Phys. Rev. Lett. 56, 926 ( 1986)] of multiorder Stokes emission in the stimulated Raman scattering from CCl4 microspheres. Many of the MDR’s have computed linewidths far too narrow to be observed in elastic scattering spectra. Evidence that these very-narrow-linewidth MDR’s may provide significant optical feedback for stimulated processes in microspheres is discussed. The integrated area under resonances in the internal field coefficients does not decrease as the linewidth decreases.
