Abstract

A hybrid silicon-core, silica-clad microspherical resonator has been fabricated from the semiconductor core fiber platform. Linear and nonlinear characterization of the resonator properties have shown it to exhibit advantageous properties associated with both materials, with the low loss cladding supporting high quality (Q) factor whispering gallery modes which can be tuned through the nonlinear response of the crystalline core. By exploiting the large wavelength shift associated with the Kerr nonlinearity, we have demonstrated all-optical modulation of a weak probe on the timescale of the femtosecond pump pulse. This novel geometry offers a route to ultra-low loss, high-Q silica-based resonators with enhanced functionality.

Fig. 1
Fig. 1 (a) Microscope image of the hybrid microspherical resonator. (b) Raman spectrum of the polysilicon microspherical resonator core compared to that of the unshaped fiber core; solid lines are measured data, dotted curves are Voigt fits (Lorentzian linewidths as indicated).
Fig. 2
Fig. 2 (a) Set-up for characterizing the hybrid spherical resonators. Box 1 and 2 are used for the transmission measurements. Box 3 and 4 convert the set-up for the pump-probe experiments used to determine the nonlinear wavelength shifting for either a CW or pulsed pump. Polarization controller (PC), fiber amplifier (EDFA), tapered lens fiber (TLF), digital sampling oscilloscope (DSO), optical component tester (OCT). (b) Transmission spectrum. Inset: Lorentzian fit to determine Ql.
Fig. 3
Fig. 3 (a) Wavelength shifting as a function of average power coupled into the TLF for CW and pulsed pumping. (b) All-optical switching of a CW probe induced by the pulsed pump. Inset: the CW probe position with respect to cold cavity resonance dip.
