Abstract : Our goal was to exploit Quantum Confinement Stark Effect (QCSE) to prepare the next generation of nanolasers tunable self-modulated nanolasers -- with the ability to provide both high-speed modulation and wavelength tunability. We envisioned to exploit the QCSE in optically pumped nanolasers as a proof of concept. Specifically, we proposed to address the following research objectives, namely: (i) design and investigation of metallo-dielectric nanolasers subjected to an external electric field, (ii) fabrication of optically pumped nanolasers.
