Optical Snakes and Ladders: Dispersion and nonlinearity in microcoil resonators

N. G. Broderick

Microcoil resonators are a radical new geometry for high Q resonators with unique linear features. In this paper I briefly summarise their linear properties before extending the analysis to nonlinear interactions in microcoil resonators. As expected such nonlinear resonators are bistable and exhibit hysteresis. Finally I discuss possible applications and extensions to such resonators.
