Photonic Atoms: Enhanced Light Coupling
Morphology Dependent Resonances of a microsphere, i.e., photonic atom, are excited by an optical fiber coupler, which is made out of a single mode optical fiber. As opposed to the more conventional plane wave illumination geometry, the illumination by an optical fiber coupler provides spatially selective and enhanced coupling of light into the Morphology Dependent Resonances of the microsphere. The observed spectra are in good agreement with the Generalized Lorenz-Mie Theory and the Localization Principle
