Abstract

We show that a liquid-hydrogen droplet can achieve high-Q values that exceed 109 for whispering-gallery modes in the ultraviolet. We show also that pumping high-Q liquid-hydrogen droplets with ultraviolet laser radiation generates many vibrational and rotational Raman sidebands that cover a broad spectral range from the ultraviolet to the near infrared.
