The Whispering Gallery Modes (WGMs) of fused silica microspheres hold the promise for simultaneous acheivement of high Q ( > 10^9) and small mode volumes (≾ 10^(-14) m^3) necessary for strong coupling in cavity QED. Here we present results for high Q measurements into the MR along with some progress towards experimental implementation in cavity QED.
