Through the existence of very small, very high-Q resonant modes in the square lattice, the effectiveness of the photonic bandgap in photon confinement was argued. However, issues that still needs to be solved was that of electrical pumping and surface recombination. It was believed that the photonic crystal will help find the route to the ultimate thresholdless lasers that have extremely small mode volume and high-Q values.
