Abstract

Whispering gallery mode resonators are key devices for integrated photonics. Despite their generalization in fundamental and applied science, information on spatial confinement of light in these structures is mostly retrieved from purely spectral analysis. In this work, we present a detailed spectral and spatial characterization of whispering gallery modes in active semiconductor microdisk resonators by use of hyperspectral cathodoluminescence. By comparing our experimental findings to finite element simulations, we demonstrate that the combination of spectral and spatial measurements enables unique identification of the modes and even reveals specific features of the microresonator geometry, such as a wedge profile.
