We report optically pumped lasing action near 650nm of 1-amino-2-methylanthraquinone (known as Disperse Orange 11 or DO11) in the common laser dye solvents dimethylformamide and dimethylsulfoxide. Amplified spontaneous emission (ASE) was studied under second-harmonic Nd:YAG laser excitation in a transverse pumping configuration. ASE conversion efficiency is found to be comparable to other laser dyes. Photodegradation of dye solution in a micro-cuvette was investigated. While DO11 in poly(methyl… 
Mechanisms of reversible photodegradation in disperse orange 11 dye doped in PMMA polymer.
An energy level diagram is constructed that describes all measured quantities in the decay and recovery processes and a hypothesis of the nature of the associated states is proposed.
Recent progress in reversible photodegradation of Disperse Orange 11 when doped in PMMA
We report observations that dye-doped PMMA polymer with the organic dye Disperse Orange 11 exhibits self healing after photodegradation by continuous optical pumping whereas in liquid solution,

The saturation intensity, photobleaching, and decay lifetime of tris(4,7-diphenyl-1,10-phenanthroline) ruthenium(II) chloride [Ru(dpp)3] are investigated. The saturation point was estimated to be
Wavelength dependence of reversible photodegradation of disperse orange 11 dye-doped PMMA thin films
Using transmittance imaging microscopy, we measure the wavelength dependence of reversible photodegradation in disperse orange 11 (DO11) dye-doped (poly)methyl-methacrylate (PMMA). The reversible and
Imaging studies of photodamage and self-healing in disperse orange 11 dye-doped PMMA
We report on optical imaging studies of self-healing after laser-induced photodamage in disperse orange 11 dye doped into poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) polymer. In particular, the high
Two-photon fluorescence measurements of reversible photodegradation in a dye-doped polymer.
The energy dependence suggests that photodegradation is a linear process, while recovery is entropic, which could be useful to high-intensity devices such as two-photon absorbers, which can be used in many applications.


Amplified spontaneous emission and recoverable photodegradation in polymer doped with Disperse Orange 11
We report optically pumped lasing action at the attractive wavelength of 650 nm in the common organic dye 1-amino-2-methylanthraquinone (Disperse Orange 11). The dye was incorporated into poly(methyl
