Paper Abstract

Microfabricated electro-optical-mechanical systems are expected to play an important role in future biomedical, biochemical and environmental technologies. Semiconductor photonic materials and devices are attractive components of such systems because of their ability to generate, transmit, modulate, and detect light. In this paper we report investigations of light-emitting semiconductor/glass microcavities filled with simple fluids. We examine surface tension for transporting liquids into the intracavity space and study the influence of the liquid on the spectral emission of the microcavity.
