Abstract

We report on the lasing action of the graded-index polymer optical fibers containing dyes, such as Rhodamine B, Rhodamine 6G, Perylene orange and Pyrromethene 567. These dyes have been incorporated into poly(methyl methacrylate-co-2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate). These fibers were transversely pumped at 532 nm with a frequency-doubled Q-switched Nd-YAG laser. Slope efficiency of 24% and output of 1.2 mJ were obtained with a Rhodamine 6G-doped fiber. Lifetime of 200,000 pulses at 10 Hz was achieved with a Rhodamine B-doped fiber.
