Abstract

Low threshold, frequency-upconverted lasing in the two-photon absorption regime was observed in hexa gonal ZnO nanodisks. Upon near-IR excitation, the ZnO nanodisk resonators produced UV laser emission with a remarkably low threshold ( 1 mJ cm 2 ) as well as a resolved lasing linewidth of 0.1 nm . Modal analysis and far-field photoluminescence imaging of the nanolasers have suggested the dominance of whispering-gallery modes in the two-photon pumped microcavity lasing process.
