Reactive-coupling-induced normal mode splittings in microdisk resonators coupled to waveguides Academic Article uri icon


  • We study the optomechanical design introduced by M. Li [Phys. Rev. Lett. 103, 223901 (2009)], which is very effective for investigation of the effects of reactive coupling. We show the normal mode splitting that is due solely to reactive coupling rather than due to dispersive coupling. We suggest feeding the waveguide with a pump field along with a probe field and scanning the output probe for evidence of reactive-coupling-induced normal mode splitting. 2010 The American Physical Society.
