Abstract

Asymmetric resonant cavities with highly noncircular but convex cross sections are predicted theoretically to have high-Q whispering gallery modes with highly anisotropic emission. We develop a ray dynamics model for the emission pattern and present numerical and experimental confirmation of the theory.
