Abstract
We propose a new approach to realise surface addressable active photonic crystal devices. High Q-factor and low optical volume can be achieved combining lateral control of the mode size by a local modulation of the planar photonic crystal parameters, and vertical confinement assisted by a Bragg reflector. The low Q-factor of a 1D PC band edge mode can be increased up to 40000, while the optical mode volume is limited at the wavelength scale. Experimental results on laser operation achieved using this strategy in the case of an InP-based PC membrane bonded onto a Si/SiO2 Bragg reflector will be presented.
