Random lasers are promising in the spectral regime, wherein conventional lasers are unavailable, with advantages of low fabrication costs and applicability of diverse gain materials. However, their practical application is hindered by high threshold powers, low power efficiency, and difficulties in light collection. Here, we demonstrate a power-efficient easy-to-fabricate non-resonant laser using a deep hole on a porous gain material. The laser action in this counterintuitive cavity was enabled by nonresonant feedback from strong diffuse reflections on the inner surface. Additionally, significant enhancements in slope efficiency, threshold power, and directionality were obtained from cavities fabricated on a porous Nd:YAG ceramic.
