  • Nanosys Pursues Nanolaser Technology

Photonics Spectra
Dec 2002
Nanosys Inc. of Palo Alto, Calif., has signed an exclusive licensing agreement with the regents of the University of California for semiconductor nanowire-based lasers. The license will enable the company to develop laser-powered biochips and ultrahigh-resolution photolithography technology. The nanolasers can be tuned to emit radiation from the IR to the deep-UV by changing the diameter or composition of the nanowire. Offering highly localized optical illumination, they eventually may compete with blue gallium-nitride lasers in terms of brightness, dimensions and ease of manufacture, according to the company.
