Paper Abstract

We study the emission properties of various laser cavities under pulsed optical excitation of the active semiconducting conjugated polymer material. Physical origin, magnitude, and dynamics of optical gain in these novel active laser materials are discussed leading to a selection of suitable cavity configurations for laser applications. We demonstrate laser action for various planar and ring resonator configurations that can be achieved in the regimes of transient inversion and quasi stationary excitation of the polymer material pumping with femtosecond and nanosecond pulses, respectively.
