Paper Abstract

Disk lasers offer the beneficial properties of low thermal lensing, excellent heat dissipation, and the amplification of ultrashort pulses. Biomaterials can be used to produce flexible and wearable devices due to their suitable mechanical characteristics and non-toxicity. In this study, we demonstrate biomaterial disk lasers using the suppression of the coffee stain effect. They show whispering gallery mode laser emission with low threshold levels below 10 nJ/µm2. Their modes and threshold levels are controlled by varying the size of the disks. They are transferrable on curved surfaces and still continue their operation on those surfaces.
