We study the statistics of reflection and transmission coefficients of light in randomly layered amplifying media that are periodic on average. We are interested in one-dimensional universal scaling behaviours in such systems. Our study shows that while a homogeneous medium boundary condition is capable of reproducing universal scaling at low frequencies, a… (More)
