Abstract

New 3D geometries of the optical nanowire microcoil resonator are suggested and investigated theoretically. The dependence of the Q factor on coupling parameters is calculated and compared for three different profiles. Results suggest that ultra-high-Q resonators can be fabricated more easily when the nanowire microcoil resonator has a biconical profile.
