Here we study a simple way of controlling the emitted fields of sub-wavelength nanometric sources. The system consists of arrays of nanoparticles (NPs) embedded in optical active media. The key concept is the careful tuning of NP's damping factors, which changes the eigenmode's decay rates of the whole array. This, at long time, leads to a locking of relative phases and frequencies of individual localized-surfaces-plasmons (LSPs) and, thus, controlls the emitted field. The amplitude of the LSP's oscillations can be kept constant by embedding the system in optical active media. In the case of full loss compensation, this implies that, not only the relative phases, but also the amplitudes of the LSPs remain fixed, leading us, additionally, to interpret the process as a new example of synchronization. The proposed approach can be used as a general way of controlling and designing the electromagnetic fields emitted by nanometric sources, which can find applications in optoelectronic, nanoscale lithography and probing microscopy.
