We propose a scheme of a ZnO room-temperature polariton laser based on a photonic crystal slab. We predict a very low threshold density for optical pumping: 5 1016 cm-3. We have studied the threshold dependence on the parameters of the system, such as detuning. The main advantage of photonic-crystal-based polariton laser is expected to be the simplicity of production.
