Wave-dynamical properties of dielectric resonators investigated with microwaves

The aim of the experiments described in this thesis was the investigation of different aspects of dielectric resonators with microwave experiments. Dielectric cavities have received much attention in

Spatial structure of lasing modes in wave-chaotic semiconductor microcavities

We present experimental and numerical studies of broad-area semiconductor lasers with chaotic ray dynamics. The emission intensity distributions at the cavity boundaries are measured and compared to

Model for chaotic dielectric microresonators

We develop a random-matrix model of two-dimensional dielectric resonators which combines internal wave chaos with the deterministic Fresnel laws for reflection and refraction at the interfaces. The

Theory of the Spatial Structure of Non-linear Modes in Novel and Complex Laser Cavities

A new formalism [1,2] for calculating exact steady-state non-linear multi-mode lasing states for complex resonators is developed and applied to conventional edge-emitting lasers and to lasers with

Coherent Perfect Absorption in Chaotic Optical Microresonators for Efficient Modal Control

Non-Hermitian wave engineering has attracted a surge of interest in photonics in recent years. One of the prominent phenomena is coherent perfect absorption (CPA), in which the annihilation of

We use the multi-mode lasing equations of Haken to analyze the stationary state lasing patterns of two-dimensional dielectric microcavity lasers of different shape, including the circle and various

We report on progress in developing optical microresonators and microlasers based on deformations of dielectric spheres and cylinders. We review the different semiconductor and polymer dye

Wave chaos in dielectric resonators: Asymptotic and numerical approaches

Wave Chaos in Dielectric Resonators: Asymptotic and Numerical Approaches Hakan E. Türeci 2004 Dielectric optical micro-resonators and micro-lasers represent a realization of a wavechaotic system,

Ray and wave chaos in asymmetric resonant optical cavities

OPTICAL resonators are essential components of lasers and other optical devices. A resonator is characterized by a set of modes, each with a resonant frequency ω and resonance width δω= 1/τ, where τ

Quantum chaos in optical systems: the annular billiard.

An S-matrix approach to open optical cavities is introduced which proves very suitable for the identification of resonances of intermediate width that will be most important in future applications like optical communication devices and it is shown that the Husimi representation is a useful tool in characterizing resonances.

Gaussian-optical approach to stable periodic orbit resonances of partially chaotic dielectric micro-cavities.

The quasi-bound modes localized on stable periodic ray orbits of dielectric micro-cavities are constructed in the short-wavelength limit using the parabolic equation method. These modes are shown to

Ray chaos and Q spoiling in lasing droplets.

In the ideal sphere these resonances are only broadened by evanescent leakage (“tunneling”), hence their enormous Q values.

Semiclassical Theory of the Emission Properties of Wave-Chaotic Resonant Cavities

We develop a perturbation theory for the lifetime and emission intensity for isolated resonances in asymmetric resonant cavities. The inverse lifetime $\Gamma$ and the emission intensity $I(\theta)$

Quantum phase-space structures in classically mixed systems: a scattering approach

The structure of quantum wavefunctions is discussed for a billiard system with mixed classical dynamics. Using a scattering formalism, we introduce a Husimi-like distribution for S-matrix

Dynamical tunneling in optical cavities

The lifetime of whispering gallery modes in a dielectric cavity with a metallic inclusion is shown to fluctuate by orders of magnitude when size and location of the inclusion are varied. We ascribe

Quasinormal-mode expansion for waves in open systems

An open system is not conservative because energy can escape to the outside. As a result, the time-evolution operator is not Hermitian in the usual sense and the eigenfunctions (factorized solutions

Observation of emission from chaotic lasing modes in deformed microspheres: displacement by the stable-orbit modes

By combining detailed imaging measurements at different tilt angles with simulations of ray emission from prolate-deformed lasing microdroplets, we conclude that the dominant contribution to the
