Abstract

It is shown that thin films of dielectric, etched through with a suitably chosen lattice of holes, can support surface-emitting vertical resonances with very-high-cavity Q factors (105 in the case of AlxGaAs1-x on oxidized AlyGaAs1-y). A Bloch-wave expansion is used to develop a complete vector-field analysis of these resonances and to reveal their underlying physics. Since they do not require multilayer mirrors, such resonators are a practical and simple replacement for conventional vertical-cavity surface-emitting laser structures. Other applications include wavelength-division-multiplexing components and highly sensitive gas detectors.
