The development of high performance optically pumped organic lasers operating in the deep blue still remains a big challenge. In this paper, we have investigated the photophysics and the optical gain characteristics of a novel fluorene oligomer functionalized by four triphenylamine (TPA) groups.

Abstract

The development of high performance optically pumped organic lasers operating in the deep blue still remains a big challenge. In this paper, we have investigated the photophysics and the optical gain characteristics of a novel fluorene oligomer functionalized by four triphenylamine (TPA) groups. By ultrafast spectroscopy we found a large gain spectral region from 420 to 500 nm with a maximum gain cross-section of 1.5 × 10-16 cm2 which makes this molecule a good candidate for photonic applications. Amplified Spontaneous Emission measurements (ASE) under 150 fs and 3 ns pump pulses have revealed a narrow emission at 450 nm with a threshold of 5.5 μJcm-2 and 21 μJcm-2 respectively. Our results evidence that this new fluorene molecule is an interesting material for photonic applications, indeed the inclusion of TPA as a lateral substituent leads to a high gain and consequently to a low threshold blue organic ASE.
