The 2nd International Workshop on Asymmetric Microcavity and Wave Chaos

Microcavities featuring ultrahigh quality factor and small mode volume enhance significantly light-matter interactions. The traditional microcavities are usually symmetric in cavity geometries, in which the modes are isotropic, hinder them from potential applications. This particular drawback stimulates broad interests in research towards asymmetric microcavities, which maintain high quality factor and exhibit complicated nonlinear behaviors at the same time. Besides the fundamental implications of asymmetric microcavities, their unique properties, including far-field directional emission, free-space coupling, chaotic dynamics behaviour, etc., result in a variety of applications such as unidirectional laser source, optical energy storage, and sensing.
