Abstract

We report the realization and demonstration of novel semiconductor waveguide-coupled microcavity ring and disk resonators. For a 10.5-µm-diameter disk resonator, we measure a finesse of 120, a resonant linewidth of 0.18  nm, and a free-spectral range of 21.6  nm in the 1.55-µm-wavelength region. We present the nanofabrication methods and the experimental results for 10.5- and 20.5-µm-diameter ring and disk resonators to show the feasibility of such devices.
