Abstract

Semiconducting polymers are a rapidly advancing class of optoelectronic materials. They give efficient light emission under optical or electrical stimulation, and offer promise as compact, lightweight and simple to fabricate lasers. The development of such active polymer components complements developments in polymer fibre and planar lightwave circuits opening new directions in polymer integrated optics. In this article progress towards making compact practical polymer lasers is described. The potential for polymer lasers to operate in the space radiation environment is also discussed.
