Abstract

Light sources are used in optofluidic devices for real-time system control and quantitative analysis of important process parameters. In this work, we present a random laser source using a hollow-core antiresonant reflecting optical waveguide (HC-ARROW) containing the gain media inside a reservoir to reduce dye bleaching, which is connected to microchannel waveguides to increase beam directionality. The device is pumped externally and emits a highly coherent and collimated laser beam.
