On the threshold of photonic-crystal slow-light lasers (Conference Presentation)

Paper Abstract

In the talk we will discuss the role of disorder-induced losses on the threshold of line-defect photonic crystal lasers. Experiments reveal an optimum cavity length, on the order of 10 unit cells, where the laser threshold density attains a minimum. The results can be explained by considering the role of slow-light propagation on the threshold of a photonic crystal laser. We will also discuss the possibility of alleviating this dependence on cavity length by replacing one of the mirrors with a narrow-band mirror based on a Fano resonance.
