On-chip green silica upconversion microlaser.


We demonstrate an erbium-doped silica toroidal microcavity upconversion laser on a silicon chip lasing in the visible spectral range (510-580 nm). The microcavity is pumped at 1458 nm by a tapered optical fiber coupled to the cavity and the lasing threshold is 690 muW. Lasing is observed at room temperature despite the high nonradiative relaxation rates of… (More)
