Abstract

We demonstrate an approach to creating localized whispering gallery mode (WGM) microcavities by exploiting the photosensitivity of a chalcogenide (As2S3) microfiber. A highly prolate WGM microcavity with cavity quality factors (Q) exceeding 2×10(5) is fabricated and characterized. Without the need for geometrical shaping, our approach enables the cavity properties to be monitored during fabrication for the first time.
