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


Optical loss of a chemically-synthesized light-emitting nanowire can be reduced by embedding the nanowire in an optical microcavity. Design of nanowire/photonic crystal platform as well as characterization of nanowire embedded in race-track microresonator are presented.
