Metal-encased semiconductor nanowires as waveguides for ultrasmall lasers

Abstract

We show that a semiconductor nanowire encased by a metal offers the smallest laser waveguide, despite the large Joule loss. The TM01 mode immediately above its cut-off is most advantageous for making sub-wavelength lasers.
