We report an effective emission intensity modulation of a microcavity laser (VCSEL) with frequencies of up to 40 GHz at room temperature. We investigate a planar microcavity laser, whose active medium are GaAs quantum wells while the DBRs are built out of alternating layers of AlAs/GaAlAs. Due to the acoustic impedance mismatch of these material system, the DBRs possess not only optical, but also acoustic resonances. In a laser with such an optomechanical resonator, the interaction between the three excitations -photons, phonons and excitons- is drastically enhanced, providing control of the emission intensity: by injecting a broadband strain pulse into the cavity, the long living resonant phonon modes are excited. For different delays between strain pulse injection and pulsed optical excitation of the VCSEL, the emission intensity is monitored. The result shows prominent oscillations with frequencies corresponding to the acoustic resonances of the optomechanical device.
