|Abstract||Microscale local strain gauges with low-power consumption and large strain range were demonstrated by integrating microdisk lasers in a deformable and flexible polymer substrate. The lasing spectra of microdisk lasers were sensitive to substrate deformation and can be modulated by strains. The measured relative wavelength tuning under strains of the novel strain sensors illustrated a linear behavior with the gauge factor being similar to 4.0 nm and similar to 6.7 nm per stretching unit for microdisk lasers with the diameter of 1.2 mu m and 1.5 mu m, which corresponding to a smooth wavelength tuning of 1.5 mn and 2.6 mn under 36% strain, respectively. In addition, to being used as microscale strain gauges, the visible lasers on the deformable substrate can also function as a tunable light source for the photonic integrated circuits and flexible laser projection displays.
