Lasing action in 1-D and 2-D photonic crystal lasers based on the conducting MEH-PPV polymer is reported. First and second order periodic structures were fabricated using UV interferometric lithography. The polymer diluted in a toluene was spin coated and pumped with a pulsed second-harmonic Nd:YAG to observe stimulated emission.
