Abstract

We demonstrate the realization of a polarized random polymer fiber laser (RPFL) in the different disordered gain media doped polymer optical fibers (POFs). Multiple scattering of disordered media in the orientated POF was experimentally verified to account for polarized lasing observed in our RPFL system. This Letter presents a new avenue for fabricating polarized RPFLs in a large scale. Meanwhile, the polarization-maintaining property of random lasing for different disorder POF are researched, which will open a window to designing a polarization-maintaining random fiber laser.
