Lasing Action in GaN-Based VCSELs with top High-Contrast Grating Reflectors
Paper in proceedings, 2018

We report a GaN-based VCSEL with a high-contrast grating (HCG) as the top mirror. The HCG consisted of TiO2 and rested directly on the n-GaN without an airgap or the use of any DBR layers to boost the reflectivity. The full VCSEL structure was optically pumped at room temperature and showed a lasing threshold of approximately 0.99 MW/cm2 and a lasing wavelength at 369.8 nm. The demonstration of HCG GaN-based VCSEL opens up the possibility to explore all the potential benefits of HCGs in the blue and ultraviolet spectral regime.
