This Letter describes the fabrication and operation of a single-chip white-laser device. The laser device has a multilayered structure consisting of three laser layers. Each laser layer comprises polymer claddings and a waveguide core doped with organic dye. In each laser layer, grating corrugations were fabricated by UV-nanoimprint lithography that act as distributed-feedback cavity structures. Under optical pumping, lasing output with red, green, and blue colors was simultaneously obtained from the sample edge.
