Abstract

Radiation loss and resonant frequency shift due to sidewall surface roughness of circular and square high-contrast microcavities are estimated and compared by use of a boundary integral equations method. An effect of various harmonic components of the contour perturbation on the whispering-gallery (WG) modes in the circular microdisk and WG-like modes in the square microcavity is demonstrated. In both cases, contour deformations that are matched to the mode field pattern cause the most significant frequency detuning and Q-factor change. Favorably mode-matched deformations have been found, enabling one to manipulate the Q factors of the microcavity modes.
