The market demands for innovative, efficient, small package and single-mode light sources are always high because of their broad applications in scientific, medical, industrial, and commercial fields. The high photoluminescence quantum yield, photophysical and photochemical stability, and tunable emission wavelength make quantum dots ideal for a new generation of solid state light sources. We report on the realization of various single-mode light sources in the visible spectral band by using semiconductor quantum dots. The effective use of a waveguide structure can help achieve the divergence control of the output light beam. This technique may benefit the development for next generation light emitting diodes, optical communication, intelligent optical sensors, microprocessors, and nanoscale optical imaging systems.
