Workshop on Asymmetric Microcavity and Wave Chaos

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