Nanolaser Operates Below 3-D Diffraction Limit

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
AUSTIN, Texas, July 26, 2012 — Growing a smooth layer of silver onto a silicon substrate has improved the performance of nanolasers, a discovery that could lead to the emergence of nanophotonic devices with applications ranging from computing to medicine. Miniaturizing semiconductor lasers is crucial for the development of faster, smaller and lower-energy photon-based technologies such as ultrafast computer chips; highly sensitive biosensors for detecting, treating and studying diseases; and next-generation communication technologies. Such photonic devices could use nanolasers to generate optical signals and...Read full article
