Abstract

We develop a 3D vectorial description of microresonators of the microdisk and microring types based on the aperiodic Fourier modal method. Such a rigorous coupled-wave analysis allows us to evaluate accurately the resonant wavelengths, the quality factor, and the full profile of whispering-gallery modes. The results are compared with 2D (effective index) as well as 3D finite-difference time domain calculations.
