Abstract
We report on light emission from high-Q neodymium-implanted silica microtoroids. After description of the fabrication process of microtoroids, Neodymium light emission is analysed. This emission is coupled to various modes of the cavity. Using evanescent wave detection, we achieve selective detection of Whispering Gallery Modes of a microtoroid.
