A class of laser designs based on one- and two-dimensionals (1D and 2D) photonic crystals (PCs), which result in surface emitting lasers with a fabrication process similar to that used in design-emitting distributed feedback lasers are presented. The basic principle employed in the designs is based on our recent discovery that the output characteristics of 2D gratings (or PCs) are significantly different from 1D gratings.
