Microspiral resonators allow for unidirectional lasing and the direct coupling of light to the device's microcavity-two characteristics that aren’t possible with conventional microresonators. These novel-shaped resonators are now finding promising applications as waveguide-coupled passive devices and multiple-element cascaded-resonator switches.
