Abstract

We have studied the random laser action in Rhodamine 6G (Rh6G) ethylene glycol solution with Al nanoparticles. The experiment results are obtained by pumping with a nanosecond (7ns) laser pulse, which demonstrated the existence of effective random laser emission. It is found that the threshold of the random laser depends on the concentration of the Rh6G and the concentration of Al nanoparticles. The concentration and diameter of Al nanoparticles have effects on the optical path; a higher concentration or a larger diameter results in a shorter optical path length. Also multimode survival and mode competition have been observed at a relatively high concentration (0.08M) of Rh6G, where the concentration of Al nanoparticles is 0.0015M.
