Guiding the random laser

At its most basic level, a random laser is precisely what its name implies; random. It’s random in the spectrum of light it produces and in the way that light is emitted, making what could be an extremely versatile laser source, nearly useless for most practical applications.
So, how do you control some of the randomness to make useful devices? It’s a question that’s led a team of researchers at The University of New Mexico to a discovery that’s taking laser technology to the next level.
