Abstract

Using 3D finite-difference time-domain calculations, we investigated the monopole mode in an electrically driven single-cell photonic crystal laser cavity with the introduction of a small central post as an electrical contact and heat-flow path. We demonstrate that the high-Q factor and large Purcell factor can be obtained by modifying the cavity.
