Active mirror structures based on a dielectric high-contrast grating reflector combined with optical gain are proposed. Design parameters are found that work for III-V based compounds on diamond substrates, thus allowing semiconductor disk lasers with kW output power. Preliminary fabrications validates the concept by exhibiting a passive reflectivity ~99%.
