Abstract

The effect of rotation on the lasing properties of circular Bragg micro-lasers is studied. In addition to the wavelength detuning caused by the Sagnac shift, a direct influence of the rotation on the lasing threshold of the clockwise and counterclockwise rotating modes is observed. The employment of the new effect for the realization of micro-rotation-sensors is discussed.
