A three-dimensional notched-elliptical microdisk with a wavelength-size notch on the boundary is proposed as a multi-wavelength and unidirectional emission lasing source. The device contains multiple properly designed two-dimensional whispering gallery mode-based polymer notched microdisks with different dimensions for use as a multi-wavelength source. It can have a relatively high optical quality factor of 4000, unidirectional emission with low far-field divergence_4°, and the efficiency of emission is as high as 84.2%. The effect of the notch size on the far-field divergence is analyzed, and the multi-wavelength lasing performance is characterized, demonstrating that the resonator is robust and reliable. This work paves a unique but generic way for the design of compact multi-wavelength microlasers.
