We have succeeded in synthesizing zinc oxide (ZnO) microspherical crystals and Silicon microspheres by a simple laser ablation technique in air, and demonstrated whispering-gallery-mode (WGM) lasing from optically-pumped ZnO microsphere. ZnO/MgO alloy microspheres were also successfully fabricated, and blue-shift of WGM lasing wavelength was achieved. Recently, size-controlled and on-demand fabrication of semiconductor microspheres by introducing of an optical vortex beam.

Conference Presentations are recordings of oral presentations given at SPIE conferences and published as part of the conference proceedings. They include the speaker's narration along with a video recording of the presentation slides and animations. Many conference presentations also include full-text papers.
