  title={Spaser Based on Graphene Capillary},
  author={Sadreddin B. Ardakani and Rahim Faez},
In this paper, we propose a structure for graphene spaser and develop an electrostatic model for quantizing plasmonic modes. Using this model, one can analyze any spaser consisting of graphene in the electrostatic regime. The proposed structure is investigated analytically and the spasing condition is derived. We show that spasing can occur in some frequencies where the Quality factor of plasmonic modes is higher than some special minimum value. Finally, an algorithmic design procedure is…

Spaser made of graphene and carbon nanotubes.
A carbon-based spaser design in which a graphene nanoflake resonator is coupled to a carbon nanotube (CNT) gain element and it is theoretically demonstrate that the optically excited CNT can nonradiatively transfer its energy to the localized plasmon modes of the GNF because of the near-field interaction between the modes and the CNT excitons.
Proposed graphene nanospaser
Researchers in the USA have proposed a nanoscale device that could be capable of creating a localized, intense mid-infrared field. Vadym Apalkov and Mark Stockman from Georgia State University say
Multimode analysis of highly tunable, quantum cascade powered, circular graphene spaser
We carried out a detailed analysis of a circular graphene spaser made of a circular graphene flake and a quantum cascade well structure. Owing to unique properties of graphene and quantum cascade
Electric spaser in the extreme quantum limit.
The electrically pumped spaser is promising as an optical source, nanoamplifier, and digital logic device for optoelectronic information processing with a speed of ~100 GHz to ~100 THz.
Energy equipartition and unidirectional emission in a spaser nanolaser
A spaser is a nanoplasmonic counterpart of a laser, with photons replaced by surface plasmon polaritons and a resonant cavity replaced by a metallic nanostructure supporting localized plasmonic
Demonstration of a spaser-based nanolaser
It is shown that 44-nm-diameter nanoparticles with a gold core and dye-doped silica shell allow us to completely overcome the loss of localized surface plasmons by gain and realize a spaser, and that outcoupling of surface plasmon oscillations to photonic modes at a wavelength of 531 nm makes this system the smallest nanolaser reported to date—and to the authors' knowledge the first operating at visible wavelengths.
Quantum theory of a spaser-based nanolaser.
A quantum theory of a spaser-based nanolaser, under the bad-cavity approximation, is presented, which allows to understand the fundamental principles of operation of nanolasers.

A quantum generator for surface plasmon quanta is introduced and the phenomenon of surface Plasmon amplification by stimulated emission of radiation (spaser) is considered.
The spaser as a nanoscale quantum generator and ultrafast amplifier
Nanoplasmonics has recently experienced explosive development with many novel ideas and dramatic achievements in both fundamentals and applications. The spaser has been predicted and observed
Two-dimensional gas of massless Dirac fermions in graphene
This study reports an experimental study of a condensed-matter system (graphene, a single atomic layer of carbon) in which electron transport is essentially governed by Dirac's (relativistic) equation and reveals a variety of unusual phenomena that are characteristic of two-dimensional Dirac fermions.
