The realization of high density and highly uniform nanolaser arrays in lead halide perovskite is quite challenging, especially on silicon. Herein, we demonstrate a simple way to form lead halide nanolaser array on silicon chip with high density and uniform lasing wavelengths. By positioning a perovskite microwire onto a silicon grating, only the suspended parts can hold high quality (Q) resonances and generate laser emissions. As the perovskite microwire is periodically segmented by the silicon grating, the transverse lasers are divided into a periodic nanolaser array and the lasing wavelengths from different subunits are almost the same. The transverse laser has been observed in an air gap as narrow as 420 nm, increasing the density of nanolasers to about 1250 per millimeter (800 nm period in experiment). We believe this research shall shed light on the development of perovskite microlaser and nanolaser arrays on silicon and their applications.
