Paper Abstract

Rhodamine 6G-doped hybrid gels were prepared by a sol-gel route. The inorganic component tetraethyl orthosilicate (TEOS) and the organic component glycerol propoxy triacrylate (GPTA) were simultaneously polymerized to create interpenetrating silica-GPTA networks. Crack-free, transparent dried gels in the shape of rods and fibers were obtained. Lasing properties of the hybrid rod-shaped monoliths were determined as a function of rhodamine concentration. In addition, gels in the shape of fibers were evaluated as fiber lasers for detecting ammonia vapor.
