Nanolaser arrays have certain advantages over LEDs and conventional laser diodes for solid-state lighting applications. In particular, nanocavities can channel spontaneous emission entirely into the lasing mode, so that all the emissions (spontaneous and stimulated) contribute to usable light output over a large range of current.
