Abstract

We demonstrate optical coupling to high-Q lithium niobate disks from an integrated lithium niobate waveguide. The waveguides are made by proton exchange in X-cut lithium niobate substrate. The disks with diameter of 4.7 mm and thickness of 1 mm are made from commercial Z-cut lithium niobate wafers by polishing the edges into a spheroidal profile. Both resonance linewidth and cavity ringdown measurements were performed to calculate the Q factor of the resonator, which is in excess of 108. Planar coupling represents the most promising technique for practical applications of whispering gallery mode resonators.

(a) Resonator WGM spectra around 1550 nm (3 GHz scan) collected by laterally displacing the disk along various positions across the waveguide. (b) Spectrum of resonances taken with the disk aligned with the waveguide center (d=0) showing a maximum contrast of 33%.
