Paper Abstract

In this research, we present a packaged add–drop filter composed of a silica microsphere resonator and a strongly coupled optical microfiber coupler. A one-step fabrication process using UV curable epoxy is shown to stabilize the microsphere resonator coupled to the microfiber coupler, which is used as add and drop ports. A high Q-factor of 3×107 is obtained at around 780 nm from the packaged microspheres coupled with the microfiber coupler in the add–drop configuration.
