Abstract

A solid-state green-light-emitting upconversion coherent random laser was realized by pumping macroporous erbium-doped lithium niobate with a 980 nm laser. The lasing threshold was determined to be about 40  kW/cm2. Above the threshold, the emission intensity increased sharply with the increasing pump intensity. Moreover, a narrow multi-peaks structure was observed in the green-light-emission band, and the positions of lasing lines were various at different angles. The results were the direct evidences of coherent random lasing emission from macroporous erbium-doped lithium niobate. These phenomena were attributed to the coexistence of upconversion emission and a multiple scattering feedback mechanism.
