Paper Abstract

Some preliminary results obtained from research into the development of a fibre-coupled microsphere laser-based system, with potential for sensor use, are discussed in this paper. Based on a theoretical analysis of micro-cavity laser configurations and of the design of the laser components used, an experimental setup has been created to optimize the coupling efficiency between the microsphere and the wave-guiding tapered fibre and thus to show the potential for a low threshold compact laser system as a source for a compact gas sensing device.
