Abstract

We describe modeling the solid-state dye laser with the microcavity size comparable to light wavelength. Certain symmetry in the allocation of gain material leads to depletion of odd longitudinal modes that, in turn, increases the tunability range of the microlaser. We provide simple physical explanation for the modeling results.
