We demonstrate the potential for using ZnO microspheres (MS) as a good optical modulator. ZnO MS with smooth surface exhibiting novel whispering gallery mode (WGM) in photoluminescence (PL) were synthesized by hydrothermal techniques. Sharp resonance peaks covering the entire visible range could be excited not only by UV but also visible light. Moreover, the theoretical modeling was carried out. Essential informations about the position, strength, TE and TM modes of each resonance are precisely predicted. Both experimental and theoretical results support that ZnO spherical micro cavity can be a good candidate of modulator for visible optical communication.
