Abstract

We investigate theoretically the effect of two-dimensional photonic crystal (PC) defect waveguide parameters embedded into vertical-cavity surface-emitting lasers (VCSELs) on static operation of PC-VCSEL, including spatial hole burning (SHB) and temperature in the active regions. In structures with larger pitch of PC holes, SHB occurs dramatically and temperature increases in the active region. In large-hole diameter to pitch ratio, SHB has little effect and temperature is decreased in the active regions. We also show that with higher input current, temperature rises and SHB occurs.
