Paper Abstract

Developing on-chip, dynamically reconfigurable visible lasers that can be integrated with additional optical and electronic components will enable adaptive optical components. In the present work, we demonstrate a reconfigurable quantum dot laser based on an integrated silica ultra high-Q microcavity. By attaching the quantum dot using a reversible, non-destructive bioconjugation process, the ability to remove and replace it with an alternative quantum dot without damaging the underlying microcavity device has been demonstrated. As a result of the absorption/emission characteristics of quantum dots, the same laser source can be used to excite quantum dots with distinct emission wavelengths.
