Optical data links are employed at ever shorter distances, most recently with a few meters length in between cabinets in warehouse sized computer systems. A continuation of this trend to optical chip-to-chip and on-chip communication will require highly efficient and densely integrated optical devices. We will discuss general requirements to achieve such targets in nano- and micro- scale lasers integrated with a photonic membrane platform, where we focus on the optical cavity design and the electrical properties. Additionally, we will compare the advantages of laser concepts based on metallic-dielectric confinement, photonic crystal cavities and distributed feedback using sidewall gratings.
