Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


Recent progress toward wavelength-scale photonic crystal lasers is summarized. Lasing characteristics of two possible configurations of the unit-cell photonic crystal laser that has a central node through which current could be supplied. The very high quality factor in excess of 100,000 is theoretically expected from a square lattice unit-cell photonic crystal resonator. Applications of photonic crystals to other forms of active devices are also briefly discussed.
