Abstract

We study tight focus coherent anti-Stokes Raman scattering (CARS) emission in a microcavity where the active medium is squeezed between two independent planar mirrors. We show strong modifications in the CARS forward and backward far-field radiation patterns. For low-order cavities, we demonstrate that most of the emitted power can be concentrated into a direction perpendicular to the mirrors.
