Paper Abstract

A novel dye laser based on the soluble conducting polymers poly[2- methoxy, 5-(2' ethyl-hexyloxy)-p-phenylenevinylene], MEH-PPV, and [2,5-bis(5,6- dihydrocholestanoxy)-1,4-phenylene vinylene], DC-PPV, has been demonstrated. Laser action has been tested in a transverse cavity configuration where the conducting polymer laser was pumped by light pulses generated from the second harmonic radiation of a Q-switched Nd:YAG laser. The performance of MEH-PPV in solution as a laser dye was compared to that of Rhodamine 6G in solution under identical conditions. The results indicate that the luminescence quantum yield of MEH-PPV and DC-PPV lasers is comparable to that of Rhodamine 6G.
