Modes are characterized by angular (l), azimuthal (m), and radial (s) numbers. Poles of the scattering coefficients determine their frequencies and life-times, which are degenerate with respect to m.

cw ccw splitting origin of the idea
CW-CCW splitting – origin of the idea

“We have observed that very high-Q Mie resonances in silica microspheres are split into doublets. This splitting is attributed to internal backscattering that couples the two degenerate whispering-gallery modes propagating in opposite directions along the sphere equator”

cw ccw splitting paradigm
CW-CCW splitting paradigm

M.L. Gorodetsky, et al. Opt. Soc. Am. B 17, 1051 (2000)

“… backscatteringis observed as the splitting of initiallydegenerate WG mode resonances and the occurrence ofcharacteristic mode doublets.”

Coupling coefficient

A. Mazzei,et. al.,Phys. Rev. Lett. 99,(2007)

“mode splitting has been … explained as the result of the coupling between … degenerate clockwise and counterclockwise modes via back scattering.”

axial rotational symmetry and cw cw degeneracy

In disks and ellipsoids full rotational symmetry is replaced by an axial rotational symmetry. Degeneracy with respect to m is lifted, but

Axial rotational symmetry and CW-CW degeneracy

Why ?

Typical answers: 1

Phys. Rev. A, 77, 013804 (2008), Dubetrand, et al

2. Kramers degeneracyD.S. Weiss. Optics Letters, 20, 1835, (1995)

Both answers are wrong

Abelian group: Only one-dimensional representations: no degeneracy!

Maxwell equations are 2nd order – time reversal is not linked to complex conjugation

With the inversion, the group is non-Abelian and permits two-dimensional representations.

Symmetry, CCW-CW coupling and Rayleigh scattering

Sub-wavelength scatterers = dipole approximation for the scatterer = shape of the scatterer is not important, can be assumed to be spherical

No axial rotation symmetry, but the inversion symmetry is still there = No coupling between cw and ccw modes in the dipole approximation = no lifting of degeneracy

For multiple scatterers (surface roughness) the same is true in the single scattering approximation

Convergence of the sum over l

Translation coefficients grow with l, therefore there is an issue of convergence of the sum over l in the equation for scattering coefficients. For

Effective polarizability of the scatterer is renormalized by higher l terms. This explains experimental fundings of Mazzei et al

To treat WGM’s scattering within a framework developed for plane waves leads to wrong results.

Famous Rayleigh law for scattering cross section is replaced with law for WGMs. This change in scattering law is traced to changes in asymptotic behavior of Hankel function from

Numerical results

Exact numerical computation for TM39 mode. Terms with angular momentum up to 50 were included.

The third peak is too weak to be seen here.

Relative height of the peaks depends on the size of the scatterer and distance d.

The result is the same when a cw mode is excited: degeneracy is not lifted

conclusion
Conclusion
  • An exact ab initio theory of Rayleigh (dipole) scattering of WGM of a sphere based on multisphere Mie theory is derived
  • The picture of scattering based on coupling between cw and ccw modes is proven wrong.
  • It is shown that one of peaks in the optical response corresponds to the single sphere resonance, while the other comes from excitation by the scatterer of WGM with azimuthal numbers
  • Quadratic dependence of peak’s width versus shift is explained by renormalization of the effective polarizability due to interaction with high order modes
