Abstract

In this paper, we have proposed a shell type dielectric microsphere resonator in order to enhance its quality factor. In this work we have assumed that the radius of dielectric microsphere is 12 μm and that the interior metal layer radius is 11.5 μm. We have obtained analytic equations for Vector potentials, characteristic equation, quality factor, resonance frequency and resonance location of TE modes. We have plotted these characteristics by MATLAB software and compared them with the normal microsphere characteristics.
