Abstract

The recently demonstrated inductor-capacitor (LC) laser has a strongly subwavelength mode volume. In this Letter we investigate the Purcell effect in the LC laser resonator. An average Purcell factor of 17 is computed for the LC laser. The laser rate equations are formulated and solved for the LC laser. Evidence of a large Purcell factor in agreement with the theoretical one is obtained through comparison of the threshold and the emission characteristics of the LC laser with the rate equations.
