We report the observation of intensity feedback random lasing at 645 nm in disperse orange 11 dye-doped PMMA (DO11/PMMA) with dispersed ZrO2 nanoparticles (NPs). The lasing threshold is found to increase with concentration, with the lasing threshold for 0.1 wt% being 75.8 ± 9.4 MW cm−2 and the lasing threshold for 0.5 wt% being 121.1 ± 2.1 MW cm−2, with the linewidth for both concentrations found to be ≈10 nm. We also consider the material’s photostability and find that it displays fully…

Imaging studies of temperature dependent photodegradation and self-healing in disperse orange 11 dye-doped polymers.
TLDR
While the temperature dependence predictions of the modified correlated chromophore domain model (mCCDM) are confirmed, it is found that it is quantitatively incompatible with the mCCDM as recovery in DO11/PS is found to behave as a stretched (or double) exponential as a function of time.

TLDR

Recovery of photodegraded rhodamine 6g in ester-containing polymer matrices.
TLDR
Recovery of the ASE signal is observed in dye-doped thermoplastic polyurethane and glycol-modified poly(ethylene terephthalate); both polymers contain repeating ester groups in their backbone to mediate the full recovery of rhodamine 6g from a photodegraded state.
