    DescriptionResearchers from the TU Eindhoven and DIFFER have developed an energy-efficient type of nanolaser that shines in all directions. What causes the laser to shine light in all directions, is caused by something that normally is highly undesirable in nanotechnology: defects in the material. The researchers envisage many potential applications. The research has been published in Physical Review Letters.
