Abstract

In this work, we show that the application of a sol-gel coating renders a microbubble whispering gallery resonator into an active device. During the fabrication of the resonator, a thin layer of erbium-doped sol-gel is applied to a tapered microcapillary, then a microbubble with a wall thickness of 1.3 μm is formed with the rare earth ions diffused into its wall. The doped microbubble is pumped at 980 nm and lases in the emission band of the Er3+ ions at 1535 nm. The laser wavelength can be shifted by aerostatic pressure tuning of the whispering gallery modes of the microbubble. Up to 240 pm tuning is observed with 2 bar of applied pressure. We also show that the doped microbubble could be used as a compact, tunable laser source.

From the bottom to the top are the laser emission lines from 0 bar to 2.5 bar applied pressure. The resolution of the spectrum is limited by the OSA. (b) The wavelength shift of the lasing mode as a function of the applied pressure. The red line is a linear fit and the error bar is set by the resolution of the OSA.
