Controlling the dispersion and directionality of the emission of nanosources is one of the major goals of nanophotonics research. This control will allow the development of highly efficient nanosources even at the single-photon level. One of the ways to achieve this goal is to couple the emission to Bloch modes of periodic structures. Here, we present the first measurements of the directional emission from nanowire photonic crystals by using Fourier microscopy. With this technique, we…

Silicon Mie resonators for highly directional light emission from monolayer MoS2
Controlling light emission from quantum emitters has important applications, ranging from solid-state lighting and displays to nanoscale single-photon sources. Optical antennas have emerged as
Directional and Polarized Emission from Nanowire Arrays.
TLDR
This work demonstrates a precise control of both the directionality and the polarization of the nanowire array emission by changing thenanowire diameter, and tunes the polarization from unpolarized to either p- or s-polarized.
Nanowire antenna absorption probed with time-reversed fourier microscopy.
TLDR
Time-reversed Fourier microscopy is introduced that enables the measurement of the angle-dependent light absorption in dilute arrays of uncoupled semiconductor nanowires and shows the transition from guided-mode to Mie-resonance absorption in individual nanowire and the relative efficiency of these two absorption mechanisms in the same nanostructures.
Mode Switching and Filtering in Nanowire Lasers.
TLDR
It is shown that efficient photonic mode filtering in tapered nanowires selects the desired fundamental mode for lasing with improved performance including power, efficiency, and directionality important for an optimal coupling between adjacent nanophotonic waveguides.

Hybrid Semiconductor Nanowire-Metallic Yagi-Uda Antennas.
TLDR
The directional emission of individual GaAs nanowires is demonstrated by coupling this emission to Yagi-Uda optical antennas by explaining the mechanism leading to this directional emission by finite difference time domain simulations of the scattering efficiency of the antenna elements.
