Abstract

Partial suppression of lasing by intense stimulated Raman scattering of ethanol in a 10−4 M Rhodamine 6G-doped ethanol droplet can be observed at high input-laser intensity when the Raman signal overlaps with the lasing spectrum. Extra stimulated emission of the Rhodamine 6G caused by stimulated Raman scattering of ethanol can saturate the Rhodamine 6G lasing gain to below threshold.

Figures (3)

Fig. 1
Fig. 1

SRS and lasing spectra from R6G-doped (1.25 × 10−4 M) ethanol droplets at Iin = 0.4 GW/cm2 (solid curve) and Iin = 0.8 GW/cm2 (dashed curve) with λin = 494.9 nm. The two curves are plotted on the same intensity scale. The intensities of the MDR-related R6G lasing peaks (c–e) at Iin = 0.8 GW/cm2 are lower than those at Iin = 0.4 GW/cm2 because the intense ethanol SRS (MDR j) partially suppresses lasing.

Fig. 2
Fig. 2

Same as Fig. 1 except with λin = 504.9 nm. The ethanol SRS peak (on MDR j) now occurs at 592.7 nm.

Fig. 3
Fig. 3

Lasing from R6G-doped (1.25 × 10−4 M) water droplets at Iin = 0.25 GW/cm2 (solid curve) and Iin = 1 GW/cm2 (dashed curve) with λin = 495 nm. The Raman gain of water is not dominant at such Iin's, and the intensities of the MDR-related R6G lasing peaks increase with increasing Iin.
