Abstract:The same IILD + oxidation process is used to fabricate a two-dimensional active photonic lattice that is comprised of $\sim$9-$\mu$m microdisk lasers that are arranged in a triangular (hexagonal close-packed) lattice arrangement. The disks are closely spaced (11-$\mu$m center-to-center spacing) such that they are strongly coupled. As a result of the coupling of the disks, the photonic lattice exhibits laser operation in bands of energy located around the microdisk modes. In addition, the photonic lattice emits beams of energy along six symmetrical "crystal" directions. The details of photonic lattice fabrication and characterization are described.
