Coupling in Optical Microcavity-Arrays — •Tom Rodemund and Martina Hentschel — Department of Physics, University of Applied Sciences Chemnitz, Chemnitz, Germany

Optical microcavities capture light by total internal reflection in so-called whispering-gallery modes. Deformed disk-shaped microcavities, for example of Limaçon shape, allow one to keep high Q-factors while manipulating the far-field emission via the resonator geometry, thereby allowing for a wide range of applications from microlasers to sensors.

Coupling of several microdisk resonators enhances the possibilities to tame light considerably [1]. Depending on the number and distance of the coupled cavities, the far-field characteristics vary tremendously and can even be reversed [1]. Here, we investigate the underlying mechanisms. To this end we use phase-space methods and analyze the resonance wave functions in real space as well as the corresponding Husimi functions to characterize the coupling behavior. We employ ideas from ray-wave correspondence to deepen our insight by establishing a relation to the nonlinear light ray dynamics and its fingerprint in the Poincaré surface of section.
