The study of subwavelength behavior of light and nanoscale lasing has broad potential applications in various forms of computation i.e. optical and quantum, as well as in energy engineering. Although this field has been under active research, there has been little work done on describing the behaviors of threshold and saturation. Particularly, how the gain-molecule behavior affects the lasing behavior has yet to be investigated. In this work, the interaction of surface-plasmon-polaritons (SPPs) and molecules is observed in lasing. Various phenomenologies are observed related to the appearance of the threshold and saturation regions. The lasing profile, as a visual delimiter …
