  1. "Ab Initio" Theory of Novel Micro and Nanolasers

    19 May 2008 | | Contributor(s):: A. Douglas Stone

    While the laser is one of the most important inventions of the past century and one of the most interesting and controllable non-linear systems in physics, there is surprisingly little predictive theory of lasing properties. Predicting lasing thresholds and output power far above threshold in...
