Exploring surface nanoscale axial photonics resonators for ultrahigh-resolution optical gyroscope applications

We will fabricate cylindrical glass microstructures that keep light traveling in circles for a very long time. The circular trajectory of the confined light changes very sensitively due to rotational motion of the cylinders, and these changes can be measured by detecting angular velocity. Therefore, the project aims at developing these cylinders that allow light for many rounds of propagation without leaking, as a way to increase the sensitivity to rotations. We implement optimization of the fabrication process and characterization of the fabricated microstructures to ensure that the required specifications are met.
