Abstract

We report a realization of room temperature lasing threshold of 1 μW in GaInP microdisk containing a few self-aggregated InP/GaInP quantum dots (QDs) grown by metal-organic vapor phase epitaxy. InP/GaInP QD microdisk cavities emitting in the spectral range of 700–800 nm and having the size of ~2 μm, free spectral range of ~35 nm and quality factors Q ~ 4000 were formed by wet chemical etching. Low dot density (~2 μm–2) and large dot size (~150 nm), suggesting a single dot lasing and maximum overlap of QD and cavity mode, were achieved using deposition of 3 ML of InP layer at 700°C.
