Abstract

We introduce a whispering gallery-mode (WGM) nanobump microresonator (NBMR) and develop its theory. This microresonator is formed by an asymmetric nanoscale-high deformation of the translationally symmetric optical fiber surface, which is employed in fabrication of surface nanoscale axial photonics (SNAP) structures. It is shown that an NBMR causes strong localization of WGMs near a closed ray (geodesic) at the fiber surface, provided that this ray is stable. Our theory explains and describes the experimentally observed localization of WGMs by NBMRs and is useful for the design and fabrication of SNAP devices.
