Abstract

We achieved enhanced Fano resonance by coupling a bottle resonator with a special non-adiabatic tapered fiber, where there is a high intensity distribution ratio between high-order and fundamental modes in the tapered region, as well as single mode propagation in the waist region. The resonance line shape is theoretically proved to be related to the intensity distribution ratio of the two fiber modes and their phase shift. An enhanced Fano line shape with an extinction ratio over 15 dB is experimentally reached by improving the intensity distribution ratio and tuning the phase shift. The results can remarkably improve the sensitivity of whispering-gallery mode microresonators in the field of optical sensing.
