Abstract

In this paper, airy functions to represent Bessel functions of large index order are applied. The eigenvalue wave equation is then reduced to a polynomial equation. The complex roots of such a polynomial are the sought whispering gallery modes (WGM) resonant frequencies which in effect, provide the Q-factors and determine the WGM field profiles. Particular emphasis has been given to deriving the spectral and spatial distribution of WGMs, along the Q-factors of the resonators. These properties are essential to characterise circular semiconductor lasers, which use WGMs as modal emission.
