Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Various aspects of the semiconductor nanowire lasers are discussed. It is suggested that the two facets of nanowires function as two reflectors for guided waves and form a Fabry-Perot cavity. The use of FDTD method allows to obtain reflectivity data for several lowest guided modes in a wide range of lasing frequencies and nanowire diameters. Results shows that reflectivity was a complicated function of the mode type, diameter and lasing frequency.
