Abstract

We have numerically studied a taper-microsphere coupling system with coupled-mode theory by introducing a mode-coupling mechanism. Transmission and reflection coefficients have been obtained directly through numerical calculation for a spherical silica microcavity. In the presence of the modal coupling mechanism, the optimal condition for transferring the light energy into the microsphere is no longer the critical coupling point. Instead, it should be in the under-coupling regime and can be reached by optimizing the size of the fiber taper and the taper-microsphere gap.
