  • Surveys enabling technology of micro- and nanoresonators for optical and photonic devices
  • Highlights current and potential future applications associated with each enabling technology
  • Assembles a group of expert contributors from the US, Japan, The Netherlands, France, and China
  • Summary

     Assembling an international team of experts, this book reports on the progress in the rapidly growing field of monolithic micro- and nanoresonators. The book opens with a chapter on photonic crystal-based resonators (nanocavities). It goes on to describe resonators in which the closed trajectories of light are supported by any variety of total internal reflection in curved and polygonal transparent dielectric structures. The book also covers distributed feedback microresonators for slow light, controllable dispersion, and enhanced nonlinearity. A portion of coverage is dedicated to the unique properties of resonators, which are extremely efficient tools when conducting multiple applications.
