High beta lasing in micropillar cavities with adiabatic layer design
MetadataShow full item record
We report on lasing in optically pumped adiabatic micropillar cavities, based on the AlAs/GaAs material system. A detailed study of the threshold pump power and the spontaneous emission beta factor in the lasing regime for different diameters d(c) is presented. We demonstrate a reduction of the threshold pump power by over 2 orders of magnitude from d(c) = 2.25 mu m down to 0.95 mu m. Lasing with beta factors exceeding 0.5 shows that adiabatic micropillars are operating deeply in the cavity quantum electrodynamics regime.
