Abstract

In this Letter, we propose defect-mode lasing from a one-dimensional asymmetric photonic structure with dye-doped nematic liquid crystal as a central defect layer. The local field intensity of the distinguished single defect mode at the overlapped photonic band edges is drastically enhanced by the asymmetric structure consisting of two distinct multilayer photonic crystals. With high density of states of photons, effective output lasing emission and maximum input excitation are ensured. As a result, the single-mode lasing with a low excitation threshold of 0.2μJ/pulse is achieved due to the combination of the defect layer and the photonic band edge effect.
