Abstract

Effective upconversion emission from an organic crystal of cyano-substituted oligo (p-phenylenevinylene) (CNDPASDB) based on two-photon absorption is presented. Frequency upconverted cavityless lasing, or amplified spontaneous emission, from the crystal pumped by a femtosecond laser of 800 nm was observed when the excitation energy exceeded the threshold of 1.3 mJ pulse 1 cm 2 . Its polarization contrast was estimated to be 0.93 . This large ratio is due to the unified unidirectional configuration of the molecular long axis in crystal, beneficial to the stimulated emission with a low threshold. These results indicate that the present CNDPASDB crystal has a potential for upconversion laser device application.
