Two-photon pumped random lasing in a dye-doped silica gel powder
We report the first observation of two-photon pumped random laser action in the ground powder of a silica gel containing rhodamine 6G doped silica nanoparticles. When this solid-state dye system is
Real-Time Spectroscopy of Solid-State Random Lasers
Random lasers are the simplest sources of stimulated emission without a cavity, with the feedback provided by disorder-induced scattering in a gain medium. Since the first experimental observation of
Random Lasing in Solid State Materials
In 1967, Letokhov theoretically predicted the possibility of generating laser-like emission starting from scattering particles with negative absorption, the so-called random or powder laser. Random
Tuning random lasers by engineered absorption
We achieve control over the emission wavelength of a random laser experimentally by adjusting the amount of absorption of emission light. The random laser consists of elastic scatterers in a high
Mie resonances to tailor random lasers
In this paper, we present an optical characterization of photonic glass-based random lasers. We show how the resonant behavior of diffuse light transport through such systems can tailor the lasing
Single-mode Er-doped fiber random laser with distributed Bragg grating feedback.
The implementation of a one-dimensional random laser based on an Er/Ge co-doped single-mode fiber with randomly spaced Bragg gratings is reported, finding that the laser output contains several competing spectral modes.
Random Distributed Feedback Raman Fiber Lasers
In this chapter we briefly review the basic principles of Raman fiber lasers operating via random distributed feedback, including details of feedback mechanism, various cavity designs, and
Solid-state random microlasers fabricated via femtosecond laser writing
Here we demonstrate resonant random lasing in Rhodamine B-doped polymeric microstructures fabricated by means of femtosecond laser writing via two-photon polymerization. To the best of our knowledge,
Tunable random fiber laser
An optical fiber is treated as a natural one-dimensional random system where lasing is possible due to a combination of Rayleigh scattering by refractive index inhomogeneities and distributed
