Lasing action in an electrically pumped organic laser device is demonstrated with a high quality factor ( Q ) microcavity structure formed by two high-reflective and low-loss electrical contacts. A 4-(dicyanomethylene)-2-i-propyl-6-(1,1,7,7-tetramethyljulolidyl-9-enyl)- 4 H -pyran-doped tris(8-hydroxy- quinoline)aluminum ( Al q 3 ) film serves as the active layer. A single longitudinal lasing cavity mode is obtained at 621.7 nm with a threshold current density of 860 mA cm 2 under a room temperature pulse operation.
