Abstract

We propose the use of egg-shaped asymmetric resonant cavities (ARCs), each of which consists of a half-circular part and a half-deformed part, as promising candidates in obtaining desirable whispering-gallery-mode resonances. According to numerical analysis based on a ray-optics model, more than an order-of-magnitude higher Q and more-concentrated emission from the tip of the egg region were obtained for egg-shaped ARCs than for the previously studied quadrupolar ARCs.
