Article
Lead halide perovskites have attracted great attention due to their excellent optoelectronic properties, with great progress being made in their performance as light emitting diodes (LEDs), photodiodes, and solar cells. Demonstrating large scale, high-resolution patterning of perovskites is a key enabling step to unlock their full potential for a r...
Conference Paper
We report the application of semiconductor nanodisk lasers within living cells. Our lasers have volumes 1000-fold smaller than eukaryotic nuclei, ultralow pulse energy lasing thresholds (Eth≈0.13pJ), and provide excellent spectral stability.

Molecular dyes, plasmonic nanoparticles and colloidal quantum dots are widely used in biomedical optics. Their operation is usually governed by spontaneous processes, which results in broad spectral features and limited signal-to-noise ratio, thus restricting opportunities for spectral multiplexing and sensing. Lasers provide the ultimate spectral...
Preprint
Nanophotonic objects like plasmonic nanoparticles and colloidal quantum dots can complement the functionality of molecular dyes in biomedical optics. However, their operation is usually governed by spontaneous processes, which results in broad spectral features and limited signal-to-noise ratio, thus restricting opportunities for spectral multiplex...
