Abstract

Record-high edge-emitted peak power was collected from L3 and finite-waveguide two-dimensional photonic crystal nanocavity quantum well membrane lasers at room temperature under single-mode operations. Peak power levels of 230μW and 540μW were collected from L3 and finite-waveguide edge-emitters, and their quantum differential efficiencies are 11% and 27%, respectively, limited by their collection efficiencies in free space.
