Abstract

We have fabricated photonic quasicrystal lasers with a Penrose lattice that does not possess translational symmetry but has long-range order, and observed coherent lasing action due to the optical feedback from quasiperiodicity, exhibiting a variety of 10-fold-symmetric lasing spot patterns. The lattice constant dependence of lasing frequencies and spot patterns show complicated features very different from photonic crystal/random lasers, and we have quantitatively explained them by considering their reciprocal lattice. Unique diversity of their reciprocal lattice opens up new possibilities for the form of lasers.
