Tunable degree of localization in random lasers with controlled interaction

, , and . Applied Physics Letters 101 (5): 051104 (2012)http://arxiv.org/abs/1207.4181.


We show that the degree of localization for the modes of a random laser (RL) is affected by the inter mode interaction that is controlled by shaping the spot of the pump laser. By experimentally investigating the spatial properties of the lasing emission we infer that strongly localized modes are activated in the low interacting regime while in the strongly interacting one extended modes are found lasing. Thus we demonstrate that the degree o localization may be finely tuned at the micrometer level.
