Abstract

Whispering-gallery modes in silica microspheres can be accessed very efficiently with the recently introduced stripline pedestal antiresonant reflecting optical waveguide (SPARROW) structure. This integrated-optics coupling technique creates novel application opportunities for the high-Q spherical cavities. We report the demonstration of a narrow-band wavelength-drop configuration utilizing SPARROW waveguides and a silica microsphere.
