Abstract

We demonstrated lasing at the Γ-point band-edge (BE) modes in optimized two-dimensional iron-nail-shaped rod photonic crystals by optical pulse pumping at room temperature. As the radius of the rod increased quadratically toward the edge of the pattern, the quality factor of the Γ-point BE mode increased up to three times, and the modal volume decreased to 56% compared with the values of the original Γ-point BE mode because of the reduction of the optical loss in the horizontal direction. Single-mode lasing from an optimized iron-nail-shaped rod array with an InGaAsP multiple quantum well embedded in the nail heads was observed at a low threshold pump power of 160 μW. Real-image-based numerical simulations showed that the lasing actions originated from the optimized Γ-point BE mode and agreed well with the measurement results, including the lasing polarization, wavelength, and near-field image.
