Micro-resonators on silicon having Q factors as high as 500 million are described, and used to demonstrate radio-frequency mechanical oscillators, micro-Raman and parametric sources with sub-100 microwatt thresholds, visible sources, as well as high-sensitivity, biological detectors
Using ultra-high-Q toroid microcavity masters, soft lithography is applied to fabricate polymer microcavity arrays with Q factors in excess of 10<sup>6</sup> . This technique produces resonators with material-limited quality factors.
Interleukin-2 (IL2) is a cytokine that regulates T-cell growth and is used in cancer therapies. By sensitizing a microcavity sensor surface with anti-IL2 and monitoring the resonant frequency, single molecules of IL2 can be detected.
