Abstract

Annular-shaped lasing emission is demonstrated from gallium nitride nanotubes fabricated using a two-step top-down technique. By optically pumping, we observe a clear threshold of 1055 kW/cm2, a narrow spectral linewidth of 0.19 nm, and guided emission from the nanotubes. Lasing is also demonstrated in a liquid environment, with an approximate doubling in threshold observed. The nanotube lasers could be of interest for optical nanofluidic applications or applications benefiting from a hollow beam shape. More generally, the results indicate that cross-sectional shape control can be employed to manipulate the properties of nanolasers.
