Progress in Photonic Crystal Vertical Cavity Lasers
Institute of Electronics, Information and Communications Engineers (IEICE)
Recent progress and achievements in creating single fundamental mode vertical cavity lasers with the technique of etching a 2-dimensional pattern of photonic crystal holes into the top distributed Bragg reflector are described. A simulation method for the design of single mode lasers is described, along with accuracy and limitations in predicting modal properties in these devices. Progress in improving output power, methods of lowering threshold currents, and small signal modulation of single mode lasers are discussed.
