Abstract

We derive a comprehensive coupled-mode theory, including resonant vertical radiation, for the analysis of non-periodic grating circular Bragg lasers. We analyze the threshold levels and modal properties of such lasers employing mixed-order Bragg gratings to achieve both strong confinement and efficient vertical emission. By reducing the threshold gain and maximizing the emission efficiency, we suggest an optimal design for the circular Bragg microdisk lasers which indicates low-threshold and high-efficiency operation is possible.
