Abstract

Tunable distributed feedback lasing output based on reflection grating configuration instead of the traditional transmission one was realized from rhodamine 6G (R6G)-doped ethanol and 4-dicyanomethylene-2-methyl-6- (p-dimethylaminostyryl)-4H-pyran-(DCM)-doped methanol. Pure gain coupling and additional index coupling were obtained in R6G-doped ethanol and DCM-doped methanol, respectively. The tuning, which was found to be independent of the refractive index of the lasing media, went through the entire stimulated emission band for the two cases. Dual-peak lasing emission indicative of the existence of an index grating was observed in DCM-doped methanol. The interval between the two peaks increased with pump energy.
