To construct a microlaser, the researchers had to create a mirrored cavity, or resonator, of sufficiently high quality to strictly limit the number of photons that could escape.
Many photonic components - such as modulators, detectors, switches, and waveguides - can be fashioned from silicon, but the light source itself, the microlaser, is often assembled from elements residing in columns III and V of the periodic table, and these elements don't sit well on top of silicon.
Constructed from disks only 5 micrometers in diameter and mounted in air on a pedestal, this double-decker microlaser is considerably smaller than the tiny semiconductor lasers that scan discs in compact-disc players.
