Intense isotropic laser emission from an optically pumped scattering gain medium has been used to induce isotropic lasing in an adjacent scattering gain medium at a longer wavelength. The energy-transfer mechanism between the media involved has been studied with a simple model based on radiation-transfer theory. The applications of this effect for wavelength-domain coding are also discussed.
