Paper Abstract

A polymer optical amplifier with a large core was prepared by a vacuum process. The laser dye as an active compound was dispersed into the large core by a vacuum process, which can disperse organic dyes in polymers at high density preventing dye aggregation. Amplification of signal beam at 650 nm was observed by lateral pumping with a pulsed laser at 488 nm. Gain of the amplifier increased with pump energy and reached 3.74 dB/cm by pumping of 80 μJ.
