A wavelength-tunable microlaser is realized based on the controlled intramolecular charge transfer (ICT) process in dye-encapsulated metal-organic framework (MOF) material. The confinement effect of the MOFs is beneficial for low-threshold lasing. By effectively controlling the polarity of the MOF pores, the population distribution between the locally excited and ICT states is continuously modulated, thus achieving broadband tunable MOF-based microlasers.
