Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


The optical properties of coated nanometer-sized spherical particles comprised of a gain medium core covered with a concentric plasmonic shell are investigated. Numerically predicted super-resonant radiative scattering suggests the possibility of realizing highly subwavelength lasers.
