Abstract

An analysis is presented to estimate the perturbation of morphology-dependent optical resonances (MDRs) of spherical dielectric cavities due to acceleration. In the model, the optical cavity is attached to a rigid base that is accelerating. Hertz contact theory is used to describe the contact surface between the base and the sphere, and the Navier equation is solved to obtain an expression for MDR shift dependence on the base acceleration. An experiment is also carried out using a polydimethylsiloxane sphere as the optical cavity. The predictions using the analysis agree well with the experimental results.
