It has been suggested recently that 1-D photonic band-gap reflectors can be fabricated along a strongly guided waveguide (i.e. a photonic wire) to form a novel microcavity laser structure. The novel microcavity laser can be seen as a linear cavity version of the photonic-wire laser and will expect it to also have a high spontaneous emission coupling efficiency. This paper, reports the fabrication of the proposed 1-D photonic band-gap structure along the photonic wire at the infra-red wavelength of 1.5 μm using nanofabrication technique. The structure fabricated is in the form of a tiny photonic wire suspended in air with holes made into the structure.
