FIG. 1.

Measured extinction spectrum (curve a) from the silver suspension, showing a peak at . Curve b is the theoretical spectrum calculated from Mie theory for a diameter silver sphere, which peaks at . The width of the experimental spectrum originates from the size and shape dispersion in the sample. The inset shows the scanning electron microscope image of the polydisperse silver nanoparticles.

FIG. 3.

Variation of the emission linewidth with pump fluence . The silver-scatterer-based random laser at (open triangle) performs on par with a dielectric-scatterer () based random laser (dotted line, closed circle) at .

FIG. 4.

Dependence of the threshold energy fluence (open circles) and linewidth narrowing factor (filled circles) on scattering strength . Random lasing is observed over a wide optimal range of scattering strengths, centered around the crossover between subdiffusive and diffusive photon transport regimes. (Dotted vertical lines indicate the approximate transition from subdiffusive to diffusive scattering at .)
