Abstract

The spectral mode density in optical micro-bubble resonators is reduced by introducing a loss element of UV curable adhesive to selectively suppress the whispering gallery modal resonances. Asymmetric Fano resonant profile appears after spectral simplification, and the sharp slope amplifies the detecting intensity change by 4.3 times when sensing the liquid core refractive index change.
