Abstract

Tapered optical fibers with special geometries are desired for probing monolithic in-plane nanophotonic devices, as well as for optical trapping and manipulation. In this work, we demonstrate two special geometries of tapered optical fibers, namely fiber loops and helices. The fiber loops in this work are distinct from previous ones in terms of their superior mechanical stability and high optical quality factors in air, thanks to a post-annealing process. We experimentally measured an intrinsic optical quality factor of 32,500 and a finesse of 137 for a fiber loop. A fiber helix was used to characterize a monolithic cavity optomechanical device. Moreover, a microfluidic “roller coaster” was demonstrated, where microscale particles in water were optically trapped and transported by a fiber helix. Tapered fiber loops and helices can find various applications ranging from on-the-fly characterization of integrated photonic devices to particle manipulation and sorting in microfluidics.

Figures (4)

Fig. 1.
Fig. 1.

(a) Fabrication setup. The rotational fiber holders are on both sides of the fiber. (b), (c) SEM images and (d)–(f) optical microscope images of fabricated tapered fibers. (d) Fiber loop before annealing. (b)–(e) Fiber loop after annealing. (c), (f) Fiber helix. Scale bars: 15 μm.

Fig. 2.
Fig. 2.

Transmission spectra of (a) a fiber loop before annealing, (b) a loop after annealing, and (c) a fiber helix. No resonance was observed in the helix and the fiber loop without annealing. Multiple optical modes were observed in the annealed fiber loop. Left inset in (b) shows the zoomed-in transmission spectrum of one doublet. The doublet corresponds to two optical modes with the same mode number but different polarization states. An intrinsic optical quality factor of 32,500 is obtained from the curve fitting [blue solid line in the left inset in (b)]. Insets on the right in (a)–(c) are the optical microscopy images of the corresponding tapered optical fibers.

Fig. 3.
Fig. 3.

(a) Computer-generated schematic of optical coupling between a tapered fiber helix and a microdisk resonator; the yellow arrows indicate the light propagation direction. (b) SEM image of the tuning fork cavity optomechanical device. Inset shows an optical microscopy image of the device being tested, and the fiber helix is coupled in the near field to the microdisk resonator. The scale bars are 10 μm. (c) Transmission spectrum of the tuning fork device. A Q of 1.08 × 10 6 was readily obtained with the fiber helix probe. (d) Mechanical spectrum of the same tuning fork device. The two mechanical modes correspond to the in-phase and out-of-phase tuning fork modes, respectively. The device was tested in air, thanks to the mechanical stability of the fiber helix.

Fig. 4.
Fig. 4.

(a) Schematic of a silica bead trapped and moved (shown as a green arrow) by a fiber helix, like a microscale roller coaster. The free beads move in random directions (shown as red arrows) because of Brownian motion. (b) Schematic of the microfluidic trapping setup. (c–h) Successive pictures showing the trapping results. The light guided in the fiber helix propagated from top to bottom. The red arrows indicate the position of the bead being trapped and propelled. The time interval between each adjacent frame is 3 s.
