In this invited talk I will review our research activity on near-field Anapole nanolasers. Anapoles are radiationless light states that do not possess far field emission. Thanks to their unique nature, these states enable a new concept of laser source, whose emission is totally confined in the near field. We will discuss applications of this concept for ultra-fast (100 fs), mode-locking pulse generation in integrated optical structures with GaAs semiconductors.

Conference Presentations are recordings of oral presentations given at SPIE conferences and published as part of the conference proceedings. They include the speaker's narration along with a video recording of the presentation slides and animations. Many conference presentations also include full-text papers.
