Abstract

We demonstrate indirect electrically pumped lasing in a hybrid polymer laser. The lasers comprise a corrugated fluorene copolymer waveguide on an InGaN light-emitting diode and were driven under nanosecond pulsed operation. We observe the onset of distributed feedback lasing at 568 nm for peak drive currents above 144 A. Angle-resolved photoluminescence measurements identify the lasing mechanism as band edge feedback from a photonic stopband in the TE0 waveguide mode. (c) 2008 American Institute of Physics.
