Photonic cavities play a paramount role in the whole field of optics, ranging from sensing, lasing, harmonic generation or even quantum optics. A variety of configuration is proposed and realized with continuous progressing to improve the light condiment. However, better performance always accompanied with more sophisticated fabrication techniques, which hinders the application at industrial level. On the other hand, the development in disordered photonics may shed light on realizing a cavity with greatly reduced fabrication tolerance. This project will focus on how to use disorder to develop new type of photonic cavities with the balance between the performance and fabrication easiness and combine it with cutting edge applications.
