Paper Abstract

We present numerical solutions for low order hexagonal whispering gallery modes to simulate the resonant behaviour of single zinc oxide (ZnO) nanopillars. Experimental resonance spectra of such nanocavities, determined by polarization-resolved micro-photoluminescence spectroscopy, are well described by the results of our numerics. The spectral analysis yields the particular birefringence of every investigated nanopillar, consistent with current literature values for ZnO bulk material. Hence, the whispering gallery effect has been utilized to detect optical constants of individual nanostructures.
