We investigate the suitability of toroidal microcavities for strong-coupling cavity quantum electrodynamics sQEDd. Numerical modeling of the optical modes demonstrate a significant reduction of the modal volume with respect to the whispering gallery modes of dielectric spheres, while retaining the high-quality factors representative of spherical cavities. The extra degree of freedom of toroid microcavities can be used to achieve improved cavity QED characteristics. Numerical results for atom… CONTINUE READING
