Odom's research team has found a way to integrate liquid gain materials with gold nanoparticle arrays to achieve nanoscale plasmon lasing that can be tuned dynamical, reversibly and in real time.
Solid state Lasers have a lasing medium that is solid crystal, like the ruby laser or the neodymium YAG laser, which emits 1.
Expeditious reporting can assist local law enforcement in determining the location of the lasing source.
The two new lasers, developed by a team of researchers from the University of California, San Diego, require very low power to operate, which is an important breakthrough since lasers usually require greater and greater "pump power" to begin lasing as they shrink to nano sizes.
Lasing proteins could provide a more sensitive biological tag for identifying molecules inside cells.
Therefore, it is very unlikely that bulk crystalline silicon can be used as a photonic material for optical amplification and lasing except for silicon engineered materials such as silicon hang-clusters, Erdoped silicon-rich oxide, dislocated silicon, and SiGe superlattices.
With a convenient approach to reversible phototuning of the lasing frequency by means of UV irradiation, a novel tunable distributed-feedback laser based on a cholesteric liquid crystal composed of a mixture of cholesterol esters and azoxy nematics doped with a pyrromethene dye is demonstrated by Igor P.
Summary: TEHRAN (FNA)- An Iranian researcher and her colleagues managed to build the smallest room-temperature nanolaser to date, as well as an even more startling device: a highly efficient, 'thresholdless' laser that funnels all its photons into lasing, without any waste.
The number of commercial and military pilots who report a lasing incident has increased with the proliferation of lasers, particularly inexpensive green laser pointers and red laser aiming devices.
Without such equipment, the concentrated beam would damage the lasing medium.
These crystals are particularly useful in laser and telecom applications as the crystals feature low lasing wavelength absorption and high conversion efficiency.
