Nanolasers made from III–V active materials and metal-clad cavities have attracted research interest because of the small volume possible with metal nanocavities.1 Proposed applications include intrachip optical interconnects and optical sensors. The metal-clad nanocavities are one of several cavity approaches being studied, and differ from dielectric and semiconductor nanocavities in their high optical...
Photonic crystal slab nanocavities containing one layer of quantum dots have exhibited: strong coupling to a single quantum dot; tuning by condensation of xenon gas; linewidth broadening due to ensemble dot absorption; gain and lasing.
