Paper Abstract

We study lasing in regular arrays made from aluminum nanoparticles. We show that these structures function as laser sources at visible wavelengths, even when scaled to an order of magnitude smaller areas compared to existing literature. The aluminum nanoparticles provide a robust platform for studying lasing in plasmonic systems, even when the optical losses are higher compared to silver or gold.
