- n. A laser that uses nanowires or similar devices to produce very fine beams of coherent light
Sorry, no etymologies found.
Min said one of the first applications of the whispering gallery plasmonic microcavity is likely to be the development of a plasmonic nanolaser.
Our work paves the way to accomplish the demonstration of a real plasmonic nanolaser.
New nanolaser key to future optical computers and technologies
Future work may involve creating a spaser-based nanolaser that uses an electrical source instead of a light source, which would make them more practical for computer and electronics applications.
"Here, we have demonstrated the feasibility of the most critical component - the nanolaser - essential for nanophotonics to become a practical technology," Shalaev said.
"Therefore, we need a good, high-Q plasmonic microcavity to make a plasmonic nanolaser.
