Paper Abstract

High quality factor whispering gallery mode microresonators are ideally suited for nonlinear optical interactions. We demonstrate x(3)-based nonlinear interactions in silica microspheres, consisting in third harmonic generation and Raman assisted TSFG in the visible. A tunable, CW multicolour emission has been quantitatively measured controlling the cavity mode dispersion by choosing suitable sized microspheres and exciting the proper modes for efficient frequency conversion.
