Abstract

It is shown that lasing can be achieved in commercial organic liquid scintillators. Using a dynamic grating induced by an interference pattern in the scintillator volume, distributed feedback lasing is shown to occur in four out of five commercial liquid scintillators that have been investigated. Although these scintillators are not designed for lasing application, their purpose being to measure radioactivity, induction of a laser effect, furthermore with a tuning range of approximately 30 nm, has been attained.
