We report the first room temperature CW operation of two dimensional single-mode edge-emitting photonic crystal Bragg lasers. Single-mode lasing with single-lobed, diffraction limited far-fields is obtained for 100μm wide and 550μm long on-chip devices. We also demonstrate the tuning of the lasing wavelength by changing the transverse lattice constant of the photonic crystal. This enables a fine wavelength tuning sensitivity (change of the lasing wavelength/change of the lattice constant) of 0.072. This dependence proves that the lasing mode is selected by the photonic crystal lattice.
