Paper Abstract

Recent progress toward wavelength-scale photonic crystal lasers is summarized. To realize the ultimate laser, one needs to have a wavelength-scale photonic crystal cavity that is lossless. As a candidate for this ultimate laser, the two-dimensional unit-cell photonic crystal laser compatible with current injection is proposed. Experimental demonstration of the low-threshold two-dimensional photonic crystal lasers in the triangular lattice and the square lattice will be discussed. The very high quality factor in excess of 1,000,000 is theoretically predicted from the wavelength-scale resonator supporting the whispering-gallery-like photonic crystal mode.
