Abstract: A TiO2@Silica nanoparticle has been introduced in a random laser. TiO2 particles with an average diameter of 0.41 mu m were coated with silica shells of different thicknesses. Strong dependency of silica shell thickness on the medium scattering strength was found. A mathematical relationship between the scattering mean free path, random laser threshold, and random laser efficiency was developed. Higher efficiency, lower laser threshold, narrower bandwidth, and longest photobleaching lifetime were obtained in the random laser that had increased silica shell thickness. Optical colloidal stability and light coupling enhancement with scattering particles, provided by silica shell, should lead to improved laser performance. (C) 2014 AIP Publishing LLC.
