Middle-infrared random lasing of Cr2+ doped ZnSe, ZnS, CdSe powders, powders imbedded in polymer liquid solutions, and polymer films

Academic Article


  • Room temperature (RT) middle-infrared (Mid-IR) random lasing of chromium- (Cr) doped ZnSe, ZnS, and CdSe powders, powders imbedded in perfluorocarbon liquid polymer solutions, and fluorocarbon polymer films is reported. Laser active powders were prepared without a stage of bulk crystal growth by annealing of starting chemicals (pure, mixed ZnSe:CrSe; ZnS:CrS; CdSe:CrSe). Mixture of the different semiconductor hosts allows tuning oscillation wavelength from 2240 to 2630 nm. © 2009 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
