Abstract

The temporal dynamics of random laser emission from Nd-doped crystal powders has been investigated by using an improved detection device. The precise conditions to detect high contrast, fast oscillations are described. The measured period is about one order of magnitude shorter than the one given in the literature for relaxation oscillations in these materials. The origin of these differences is discussed.
