Abstract

Butt-end fiber coupling is a compact and efficient scheme especially suitable for a surface-emitting photonic crystal (PC) band-edge laser. The honeycomb-lattice PC offers a relatively large intact area without air-holes, and therefore, a high optical gain. The use of a Γ-point band-edge mode allows vertical laser emission, yielding a fiber-coupled output power of more than 30μW. The system is virtually alignment-free in the lateral directions; however, it exhibits oscillatory decay in the vertical direction, which can be significantly suppressed by using an angle-cleaved fiber tip.

Fig. 3

(a) Input ( 980 nm ) versus output ( 1550 nm ) power of the Γ-point band-edge laser. Inset is the laser spectrum obtained from the corresponding laser. (b) Comparison of the input–output relationships for both the butt-end fiber coupling and micro-PL setups. Unlike (a), the input power in (b) is the actual 980 - nm laser power fed into the input fiber of each system.

(a) Two-dimensional map of PCL power coupled to the butt-end fiber. For the measurement, the fiber tip is laterally scanned relative to the PCL. (b) Fiber-coupled output power versus the vertical distance (between the fiber tip and the PCL surface) for two different butt-end fiber tips cut at different angles. The curves are horizontally shifted to facilitate comparison.
