Abstract

We have demonstrated an anti-Stokes random laser emission at λ 885 nm in micrometer-size powder of GaAs . The maximal pumping wavelength, λ = 1300 nm , exceeded the lasing wavelength by nearly 50%. We conclude that both one- and two-photon pumping contribute to optical excitation of the material, with the two-photon pumping being a key process in creating the population inversion and gain.
