We show that the amplified spontaneous emission (ASE) in poly[2-methoxy, 5-(2'-ethyl-hexyloxy)-1,4-phenylene vinylene] (MEH-PPV) can be tuned by controlling the film thickness and the excitation intensity, For sufficiently thin films the peak position of the ASE is determined by the cut-off wavelength for the waveguide and is shifted to shorter wavelengths with decreasing film thickness. Increasing excitation intensity causes a blue-shift of the emission spectra, We also show that excitation wavelength has no effect on the position of the ASE.
