    • High quality factor silica microspheres functionalized with self-assembled nanomaterials 

      Kandas, Ishac L. N.; Zhang, B. G.; Daengngam, C.; Ashry, I.; Jao, Chih-Yu; Peng, B.; Ozdemir, S. K.; Robinson, Hans D.; Heflin, James R.; Yang, L.; Xu, Yong (Optical Society of America, 2013-09-01)
      With extremely low material absorption and exceptional surface smoothness, silica-based optical resonators can achieve extremely high cavity quality (Q) factors. However, the intrinsic material limitations of silica (e. ...
    • Irreversible adsorption of gold nanospheres on fiber optical tapers and microspheres 

      Yi, Jihaeng; Jao, Chih-Yu; Kandas, Ishac L. N.; Liu, Bo; Xu, Yong; Robinson, Hans D. (AIP Publishing, 2012-04-01)
      We study the adsorption of gold nanospheres onto cylindrical and spherical glass surfaces from quiescent particle suspensions. The surfaces consist of tapers and microspheres fabricated from optical fibers and were coated ...
