Abstract
In the last years, optical resonators have emerged as a promising tool for highly sensitive measurements. Especially for label-free measurements of biological substances, the resonators have to be functionalized by additional surface layers. Since the properties of the resonator, like the refractive index of the core and the layer as well as the layer thickness or the core radius can deeply in fluence the sensitivity. For this reason, a geometrical optics based theory is used to investigate the dependence of the resonance wavelength on the resonator properties.
