The possibility of electrical pumping of a single QD and the integration of such a device in an opto-electronic circuit would be a fundamental step towards achieving an "on demand" single photon source. In this paper we describe the fabrication process and preliminary results of a Light Emitting Diode (LED) integrated with a photonic crystal (PhC) nanocavity on a GaAs membrane. We demonstrate effective electric pumping of the QDs embedded into the membrane by contacting the doped layers (p and n) of the thin membrane, and the excitation of cavity modes of the PhC nanocavity fabricated on it at telecom wavelength.
