Optical Fiber Used to Direct, Stabilize Random Laser

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email
An advance in laser technology combines the broad spectral features of a random laser with the spectral stability and high directionality of a traditional laser. Such an advance could enable greater use of random lasers in applications where a broad spectrum illumination source would be of benefit. Researchers at the University of New Mexico, in collaboration with researchers at Clemson University and the University of California San Diego, demonstrated a directional random laser in a disordered glass optical fiber. The laser operates in the Anderson localization regime. To direct the...Read full article

    GLOSSARY
    optical fiber
    A thin filament of drawn or extruded glass or plastic having a central core and a cladding of lower index material to promote total internal reflection (TIR). It may be used singly to transmit pulsed optical signals (communications fiber) or in bundles to transmit light or images.
