Abstract

A design of microfluidic devices is presented to integrate single-mode, liquid-core waveguides with microfluidic channels that generate and deliver disklike emulsion microdroplet cavities doped with an organic dye. The microcavity modes can be directly coupled to the liquid waveguide. Cavity-enhanced spontaneous emission was observed at the waveguide with low pump pulse energy.
