An eightfold photonic quasi-crystal (PQC) sample is fabricated holographically using two-beam interference with multi-exposure based on polymer-dispersed liquid crystals. The transmission spectra from the finite-difference time-domain (FDTD) simulation prove the photonic stop band of the rotational symmetry structure of the sample. The resonant mode of the circular microcavity formed in the PQC is calculated. Amplified spontaneous emission and multimode lasing action are demonstrated from the pumped laser-dye-doped PQC microcavity using a Q-switched neodymium-doped yttrium aluminum garnet (Nd:YAG) pulse laser.
