Abstract

We have developed an electrically pumped photonic-crystal nanocavity laser, operating at room temperature. Employing an ultracompact embedded active region, the direct modulation is achieved at 10-Gbit/s with ultra-low operating energy. It opens up a novel application area for lasers, namely the optical interconnects for computercom.
