A nanolaser is a Georgia State University in 2003.

These tiny lasers can be modulated quickly and, combined with their small footprint, this makes them ideal candidates for on-chip optical computing. The intense optical fields of such a laser also enable the enhancement effect in non-linear optics or surface-enhanced-raman-scattering (SERS),[1] and therefore paves the way toward integrated nanophotonic circuitry.[2]

In 2012, researchers at gain material," constructs which were thought to be suitable for inclusion in photonic circuit architectures.[3]

In February 2012, researchers at University of California San Diego demonstrated the first thresholdless laser and the smallest room temperature nanolaser using plasmonic nanoscale coaxial structures.[4]
