Zusammenfassung Arrays of quantum dot micropillar lasers are an attractive technology platform for various applications in the wider field of nanophotonics. Of particular interest is the potential efficiency enhancement as a consequence of cavity quantum electrodynamics effects, which makes them prime candidates for next generation photonic neurons in neural network hardware. However, particularly for optical pumping, their power-conversion efficiency can be very low. Here we perform an in-depth experimental analysis of quantum dot microlasers and investigate their input-output relationship over a wide range of optical pumping conditions. We find that the current energy efficiency limitation is caused by disadvantageous optical pumping concepts and by a low exciton conversion efficiency. Our results indicate that for non-resonant pumping into the GaAs matrix (wetting layer), 3.4\&\#x0025; (0.6\&\#x0025;) of the optical pump is converted into lasing-relevant excitons, and of those only 2\&\#x0025; (0.75\&\#x0025;) provide gain to the lasing transition. Based on our findings, we propose to improve the pumping efficiency by orders of magnitude by increasing the aluminium content of the AlGaAs/GaAs mirror pairs in the upper Bragg reflector.
