Abstract

This Letter presents a polarimetric study of the emission of random lasers from organic dyes. Coherent lasing modes from samples with ethanol solvent showed a high degree of polarization and did not influence each other in polarization. The proper choice of a laser dye with asymmetric absorption momenta, a highly viscous solvent, and a linear pump polarization can cause the random lasing emission to be completely linearly polarized for all wavelengths within the amplification range.
