Two-dimensional Wrinkle Resonators for Random Lasing in Organic Glasses.


:Random lasers consisting of slab waveguides with two-dimensional disordered wrinkling patterns that act as scattering resonators are reported. As active material 2,2',7,7'-tetraphenyl-9,9'-spirobifluorene is used which is sandwiched between an oxidized silicon wafer and a cladding with higher glass transition temperature. Wrinkles with tailorable periodicity have been induced by thermal annealing. Photopumping experiments show the transition from amplified spontaneous emission to a multiple peak laser spectrum with linewidths as low as 0.1 nm, demonstrating the applicability of this approach for random laser design.

  • Dynamic interplay of multidrug transporters with TolC for isoprenol tolerance in Escherichia coli.

    abstract::Engineering of efflux pumps is a promising way to improve host's tolerance to biofuels such as medium-chain alcohols (CmOHs); however, this strategy is restricted by poor understanding of the efflux pumps engaged in extrusion of solvents. In this study, several Escherichia coli mutants of multidrug transporters were e...
