Photonic-crystal surface-emitting lasers (PCSELs) use the two-dimensional (2D) resonance at the band-edge of a photonic crystal for lasing, and they feature various outstanding functionalities such as high-brightness lasing, arbitrary shaping of beam patterns and on-chip 2D beam steering. In this paper, to investigate the applicability of PCSELs for high-speed operation, we design PCSELs with enhanced in-plane optical feedback, which enable single-mode lasing inside a circular region the diameter of which is less than 10 µm. To realize a strong in-plane confinement of the lasing mode, we increase the one-dimensional coupling coefficients between counter-propagating waves through the careful design of the lattice points. We also introduce an in-plane heterostructure composed of two photonic crystals with different photonic bandgaps and utilize reflection at the boundary of the two photonic crystals in addition to the optical feedback at the band-edge of each photonic crystal. By using three-dimensional finite-difference time-domain method (3D-FDTD), we confirm that the proposed hetero-PCSELs can achieve single-mode lasing operation inside a 9-µm-diameter and possibly realize a 3-dB modulation bandwidth larger than 40 GHz.
