Abstract

Photonic lattices defined by metal patterning highly uniform vertical cavity surface emitting lasers (VCSEL) wafers are presented. Excellent lateral uniformity, required for large coupled lattices, is demonstrated by the small variations of the cavity resonance in the reflectivity spectrum measured across the wafer. The structures are analyzed theoretically using a coupled resonator model employing the patterned reflectivity of the composite metal-dielectric mirror. The switching behavior of the lasing mode is further illustrated which compares the calculated and measured displacement in the peak at each pixel near the center of the lattice versus the row displacement.
