The challenges involved in the realization of microcavity light emitters using photonic bandgap (PBG) crystals with electrical injection were described. Metal-organic vapor phase epitaxy (MOVPE) was used for the growth of the device heterostructure on GaAs substrate. The measured far-field radiation patterns showed considerable linewidth narrowing in the case of missing PBG formation and confirmed that the lasing originates from the defect mode.
