Abstract

The present study demonstrates numerically a novel approach to perform a controllable single-mode random laser, using stimulated Raman gain. Due to the narrow linewidth of the Raman line shape, only one of the modes of the passive random system can lase. The robust control on the emission spectrum was achieved through the selection of any desired quasi-modes, by adjusting the pump wavelength in order to place the center of Raman line shape on desired quasi-modes. This approach was proved using a developed nonlinear transfer matrix method for a 1D Raman random system. The proposed method includes the Raman gain saturation and the frequency-dependent index of refraction.
