Effect of Amplification on Conductance Distribution of a Disordered WaveguidePhysical Review E - Statistical, Nonlinear, and Soft Matter Physics
AbstractIntroduction of optical gain in a disordered system results in enhanced fluctuations [F(2)=var(g-tilde)/2] of the dimensionless conductance g-tilde, similar to the effect of Anderson localization in a passive medium. Using numerical simulations we demonstrate that, despite such qualitative similarity, the whole distribution of the conductance of amplifying random media is drastically different from that of a passive system with the same value of F(2).
