Abstract

A new way of controlling the laser properties of optical materials by designing composite materials that exploit local-field effects is proposed. It is shown that the basic laser properties, such as the radiative lifetime of the upper laser level, small-signal gain coefficient, and saturation intensity can be controlled independently by means of local-field effects. These ideas could be used to design laser systems with significantly improved properties.
