Abstract

We have demonstrated an anti-Stokes random laser emission at λ885nm in micrometer-size powder of GaAs. The maximal pumping wavelength, λ=1300nm, exceeded the lasing wavelength by nearly 50%. We conclude that both one- and two-photon pumping contribute to optical excitation of the material, with the two-photon pumping being a key process in creating the population inversion and gain.
