Paper Abstract

We demonstrate that attenuated luminescence and lasing in optically excited organic thin films is a sensitive probe to vapours of explosives, such as trinitrotoluene (TNT). The combined chemosensing gains from organic amplifying materials and the lasing action, promise to deliver sensors that can detect explosives with unparalleled sensitivity.
