Microdisk lasers and multicavity lasers (1993 - 2001)

Scanning electron microscope image of a field of InGaAsP microdisk lasers supported by InP posts on an InP substrate. Disks are 2 um in diameter and 100 nm thick. Nearest neighbor spacing is 4.7 um and the outside diameter of the ring of disks is 14 um.

6 QW InGaAsP microdisk laser supported by an InP post on an InP substrate. The disk is 1.6 um in diameter, 180 nm thick, and lases at 1.542 um wavelength in the m = 5 mode.
