Abstract

The narrow-linewidth laser emission from a scattering gain medium can be forced to oscillate in a narrower emission bandwidth with the introduction of a seed in much the same way as the injection-seeding technique used to produce single-mode oscillation from conventional lasers. The system exhibits complete spectral collapse at all wavelengths other than that of the seed and a large enhancement of the isotropic emission peak intensity. A theory explaining the emission characteristics and the minimum threshold seed energy required for locking is presented.
