Abstract

We have studied the competition between the F 3 2 4 I 11 2 4 and F 3 2 4 I 13 2 4 gain channels in the Nd : Ba 5 ( PO 4 ) 3 F random laser. The strength of stimulated emission transitions was influenced by adding to the Nd-doped powder the powder of Cr 4 + : Y 3 Al 5 O 12 , absorbing light at λ = 1.06 μ m , and the 1.32 μ m mirror, which provided an extra stimulated emission feedback. We have demonstrated a robustness of the Nd random laser to contamination. A much better control of the spectrum of the stimulated emission can be obtained by means of wavelength-selective external mirrors.
