Abstract

We report near diffraction-limited laser emission from the conjugated polymer BEH:PPV in a cavity made with two dielectric mirrors providing a high finesse planar cavity. The laser has a sharp intensity threshold, a strong directionality, and a high degree of polarization. These emission characteristics are compared with those of a single polymer layer without optical feedback.
