The modeling, fabrication and operation of recently demonstrated lasers employing metallic nano-cavities will be examined in this presentation. An overview will also be given of latest results from devices employing metal-insulator-metal structures with sub-wavelength dimensions. Finally future development directions, challenges and prospects for such lasers will be discussed.
