Abstract

We report a simple electrospinning method to fabricate polymer bottle microresonators, which are doped with a lasing gain material and supported by electrospun polymer micro/nanofibers on a flexible grooved polymer substrate. The fabricated bottle microresonators have smooth outer surfaces and high quality. By using an interference light pump approach, single whispering gallery mode lasing is obtained, with a side-mode suppression factor over 20 dB. By mechanically stretching the grooved substrate, tunability of the lasing peaks is demonstrated. Our method has the advantages of saving time and being low in cost and may have promising applications in stretchable lasing and sensing devices.
