Lasers based on colloidal semiconductor nanostructures can benefit from the remarkable spectral coverage afforded through the quantum confinement effect. An overview is given on the first observation of lasing for colloidal CdSe/ZnS quantum rods in solution using a cylindrical microcavity. For the quantum dots lasing is not polarized, but in quantum rods the laser emission is highly linearly polarized, a desirable feature for laser and photonic applications.
