FIG. 3.

(Color online) (a) Normalized laser emission and (b) the corresponding transmission spectra of the dye-doped CLC cells with various PBGs at different sample positions. Positions 1–5 correspond to , 28.8, 27.6, 26.8, and 26.0 °C, respectively. The gray line represents the dye’s fluorescence spectrum. The laser emission occurs at band edge.

Image of FIG. 4.
FIG. 4.

The laser emission intensity from the dye-doped CLC cell as a function of: (a) the excitation energy of the pumping beam at 532 nm and (b) the threshold excitation energy as a function of the lasing wavelength.
