PIERS2016 Shanghai Focus/Special Sessions  
SC3: Optical Microcavities
Organized by Prof. Andrew Wing On Poon (The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology) and Prof. Ali Serpenguzel (Koc University)
Session's Information:
The research topic of optical microcavities has long been attracting interests from electromagnetic theorists, applied physicists and optical engineers. In recent years, we see a surge of technologically important applications using microcavities in diverse areas that are likely to transform our way of life, spanning from optical communications on a computer chip to biomedical sensing of single molecules in a lab-on-a-chip. Microcavities with high quality factor optical resonances have been reported and studied in various linear and nonlinear devices, fabricated by various techniques, and in configurations including monolithic microspheres, microrings, microdisks, micropillars, microtoroids, and other forms of resonant structures coupled to waveguides. The Special Session on “Optical Microcavities” therefore aims at inviting leading experts and workers in the field to discuss their recent progress in theoretical, numerical and experimental studies and technological applications concerning microcavities. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to the following areas:

• cavity optomechanics,
• devices for optical communications and interconnects,
• linear, nonlinear, quantum optics,
• microcavity devices (e.g., lasers, detectors, modulators, sensors),
• microcavities (e.g., microspheres, microrings, microdisks, microtoroids),
• novel optical waveguides realized with microcavities (e.g., coupled-resonator optical waveguides)
• optical frequency comb generation,
• photonic crystals,
• photon localization (e.g., morphology dependent resonances, geometric resonances, waveguide modes, whispering gallery modes)
• ray and wave chaos,
• slow light,
• surface plasmon resonance-coupling,
• ultrahigh quality factor microcavities.
