Abstract

In this Letter, we report a suspended whispering gallery mode microdisk with a hole pierced through its surface. The novel disk is made up of Rhodamine B-doped resin, which is fabricated by femtosecond laser direct writing technology. The pierced microcavity achieves highly directional emission of single-mode lasing with a far field divergence angle of about 10 deg, and its high Q factor exceeds 2.6×103. The excellent properties are confirmed by numerical simulation based on the finite-difference time-domain method. The effect of the pierced hole on the microcavity performance is discussed in detail. The method is easy to implement and has a guiding significance for improving the characteristics of an existing microcavity by simple modification.
