Abstract

I review our recent findings on lasing / condensation in plasmonic nanoparticle lattices1-5. The system properties can be tailored with high precision, including the lasing / condensation energies, linewidths, as well as the dimensionality of the feedback. For a 2-dimensional (2-D) square lattice, we identify lasing in the bright and the dark mode of the system1. By reducing the dimensionality to 1-D we observe the dark mode lasing2. In broken symmetry 2-dimensional rectangular lattices, we observe multimode lasing3. In honeycomb lattices with hexagonal symmetry, we observe 6 beams with specific off-normal angles and polarization properties corresponding to six-fold symmetry of such a lattice4. Finally, I review our recent studies in plasmonic Bose-Einstein condensation in plasmonic lattices5.
