Abstract
We have realized and characterized an optically pumped hybrid photonic crystal (PhC) L3 nanocavity made of an organic material as a gain medium and a Si3N4 two-dimensional PhC. The organic gain medium consists of a guest-host system with tris(8-hydroxyquinolinato) aluminum (Alq3) as the hosting matrix doped with 4-(dicyanomethylene)-2–t-butyl-6(1,1,7,7–tetramethyljulolidyl–9-enyl)-4H-pyran (DCJTB) as a guest. A laser emission at 662 nm with a threshold of 9.3  μJ/cm2 is experimentally observed. The impact of the organic layer thickness on the laser threshold is studied.
