Paper Abstract

We review the basic electromagnetic properties of semiconductor nanowires which are required to evaluate their performance as lasers. These properties include the dispersions for guided modes, mode spacing, reflectivities from the nanowire facets, directionality and polarization of far fields, and confinement factors. We also discuss features that distinguish nanowire lasers from the usual heterostructure lasers.
