Recently, we have theoretically demonstrated that optically injected microdisk lasers can be tuned in a class I excitable regime, where they are sensitive to both inhibitory and excitatory external input pulses. In this paper, we propose, using simulations, a topology that allows the disks to react on excitations from other disks. Phase tuning of the intermediate connections allows to control the disk response. Additionally, we investigate the sensitivity of the disk circuit to deviations in driving current and
locking signal wavelength detuning. Using state-of-the-art fabrication techniques for microdisk laser, the standard deviation of the lasing wavelength is still about one order of magnitude too large. Therefore, compensation techniques, such as wavelength tuning by heating, are necessary.
