Paper Abstract

We present a study of Distributed Feedback laser emission in various polymer materials. This laser scheme permits efficient control of the stimulated emission in dye doped polymer materials. Optical feedback is provided by distributed Bragg gratings formed in the film by interference patterns from the pump beam. We demonstrate broad tunability of laser emission in polymeric waveguides doped with stilbenoid, phenylene vinylene and oligomers of phenyl ethynylene used for OLEDs. Laser action was also obtained with Rhodamine 6G in PMMA deposited on surface relief grating and excited in a transverse single beam pumping geometry.
