We measured the second-order coherence at zero time delay, g(2)(0), of a high-Q photonic crystal nanocavity quantum dot laser below and above the lasing threshold, via detecting visible emission originated from the second harmonic generation (SHG) occurring within the laser cavity. The efficiency of the nonlinear frequency conversion process, defined by SHG intensity divided by the square of laser output intensity, is shown to be proportional to g(2)(0), and hence is used for the measurement. The obtained g(2)(0) values show good agreement with those measured by a Hanbury Brown-Twiss interferometer equipped with ultrafast superconducting single-photon detectors.
