Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Optical whispering gallery mode resonances in asymmetric morphologies
by Mohageg, Makan, Ph.D., University of California, Los Angeles, 2007, 134; 3272250
Abstract (Summary)

This dissertation describes the experimental realization of optical whispering-gallery-mode resonators constructed from crystalline material with various symmetries. Nonlinear optical scattering in disk-shaped resonators constructed from CaF 2 and LiNbO3 is discussed, as is the nonlinear optics of LN resonators with ferroelectric poling structures. Optical whispering-gallery-mode resonators with extended axes and highly elliptical geometries are presented. Experimentally observed effects of internal anisotropy on mode structure is also covered.
