Photon Statistics and Coherence in Light Emission from a Random Laser

Abstract

013602-1 We derive the photon number probability distribution of light emitted from a random multiple-lightscattering medium with gain, using a generalized master equation. Our model treats the random laser medium as a collection of low quality-factor cavities, coupled by random photon diffusion. We demonstrate that, with stronger scattering, the pumping… (More)
