We have made InGaAs sub-monolayer (SML) quantum dot photonic crystal vertical-cavity surface-emitting lasers (QD PhC-VCSELs) for fiber-optic applications. The active region of the device contains three InGaAs SML QD layers. Each of the InGaAs SML QD layer is formed by alternate deposition of InAs (1 ML) and GaAs. Single fundamental mode CW output power of 3.8 mW at 28 mA has been achieved in the 990 nm range, with a threshold current of 0.9 mA. Side-mode suppression ratio (SMSR) larger than 35 dB has been demonstrated over the entire current operation range. Near-field images of the PhC-VCSELs were also measured and studied.
