We demonstrate lasing action with a high spontaneous emission factor and temperature insensitivity in InAs/InGaAs quantum dots (QD) embedded in photonic crystal nanocavities. A quality factor (Q) of over 10,000 was achieved by suppressing the material absorption by QDs uncoupled to the cavity mode. High Q cavities exhibited ultra low threshold lasing with a spontaneous emission factor of 0.7. Less frequent carrier escape from the QDs, which was primarily favored by high potential barrier energy, enabled low threshold lasing up to 90 K.
