Dynamics of band-edge photonic crystal lasers

Opt Express. 2009 Mar 2;17(5):3165-72. doi: 10.1364/oe.17.003165.


Band-edge photonic crystal lasers were fabricated and their temporal characteristics were minutely analyzed using a high resolution up-conversion system. The InGaAs/InP photonic crystal laser operates at room temperature at 1.55 microm with turn on time ranging from 17ps to 30ps.
