Abstract

Deforming the microcavity and breaking its symmetry was shown to lead to highly directional emission pattern. As such, experiments done on two different shaped dye (DCM)-doped polymer (PMMA) samples with effective index of refraction n=1.49 was reported. In particular, the shapes used were the ellipse and the quadrupole. Although the two shapes appear very similar to the eye, a dramatic change in the far field emission patter was reported.
