Paper Abstract

The general objective of this presentation is to demonstrate the great potential of two dimensional (2D) Photonic Crystals (PC) based on InP-membranes bonded onto silica on silicon substrates, with a special emphasis on the development of various classes of 2D PC microlasers. The basic building block consists in an InP (and related material) membrane including a 2D PC formed by a lattice of holes : the membrane is bonded onto low index material,e.g. silica on silicon substrate, in the prospect of heterogeneous integration with silicon based microelectronics. Examples of devices will be presented, specifically micro-lasers based on 2D PC micro-cavities as well as on 2D in plane and surface emitting Bloch modes (2D Distributed-Feed-Back micro-laser).
