Abstract

We have studied the whispering gallery mode (WGM) resonances of GaAs/AlGaAs microcavity pillars containing InAs quantum dots. High quality factor WGMs are observed from a wide range of pillars with diameters from 1.2 to 50 μm. Multimode lasing with sub-milliwatt thresholds and high beta-factors approaching unity is observed under optical pumping in a 4 μm diameter pillar. Mode splitting is observed in WGMs from pillars with diameters of 5 μm, 20 μm and 50 μm. We develop a model in which the mode splitting in the larger pillars is caused by resonant scattering from the quantum dots themselves. The model explains why splittings are observed in all of the larger pillars and that the splitting decreases with increasing wavelength. Numerical simulations by COMSOL confirm that the model is plausible. This mechanism of splitting should be general for all circular resonant structures containing quantum dots such as microdisks, rings, toroids, and microspheres.

Fig. 1

SEM image of a typical micropillar, with a schematic showing the excitation and collection paths for the off-axis micro-photoluminescence technique. ‘Horizontal’ and ‘vertical’ polarizations are defined, respectively, by whether the electric field is perpendicular to, or has a component parallel with, the ‘vertical’ pillar axis.

Fig. 2
Fig. 2

Non co-axial micro-photoluminescence (μPL) arrangement for observing WGMs from micropillar samples.

Fig. 3
Fig. 3

(a) Comb of whispering gallery modes observed from a micropillar with a diameter of 4 μm. (b) Free spectral range (i.e. WGM separation) versus the reciprocal of the pillar radius. The red line is a fit to eqn 1. The inset shows the approximate values of the empty-cavity Q for pillar diameters of 4–20 μm.

Fig. 4
Fig. 4

Power dependence of the 958 nm WGM of the 4μm diameter pillar shown in Fig. 3(a) with CW pumping at 633 nm (○) and 800 nm (•). The inset shows the line narrowing under 633 nm pumping.

Fig. 5
Fig. 5

Logarithmic input-output curve for the 958nm lasing WGM when pumped at 633 nm (cf Fig. 4). The solid line fit is based on eqn 2 with β = 0.61 and ξ = 0.4.

Fig. 8

Power dependence of the split modes shown in the inset to Fig. 7(a) with CW excitation at 650 nm. The inset shows the power dependence of the line widths.

Fig. 7

(a) PL spectrum from a 20μm diameter pillar under 650 nm excitation. The inset shows the doublet with mean wavelength 984.8 nm on an expanded scale. (b) Mode splitting (Δλ) versus wavelength. The grey line shows the square root of the PL with an offset, as discussed in the text.

Fig. 9
Fig. 9

(a) PL spectrum of WGMs taken from a 50μm diameter pillar. The inset gives a magnified section of the spectrum around 978 nm. The components of the quadruplet are numbered 1, 2, 3 and 4 with ascending wavelength. (b) Mode splitting between the four components of the quadruplet. The schematic diagram illustrates a “triangle” mode which could cause the periodic modulation of the background spectrum in (a).

COMSOL simulations of the split modes of a 5 μm pillar containing randomly positioned QDs at a density of 50 μm−2. The dots are represented as black circles. The mode wavelengths were (a) 974.432 and (b) 974.594 nm. The false colour depicts the electric field amplitude, with red and blue corresponding to outward and inward radial senses respectively.
