A mixture of two polymer materials, poly (9,9-dioctylfluorene) (F8), and one of the poly(para-phenylenevinylene) derivatives, superyellow (SY) have been used to make F81- x:SYx polymer blend system. Under a 3-5 ns pulsed-laser excitation, this system showed excellent optical properties with low threshold values of ≈14 μJ/cm2 and ≈8 μJ/cm2 for amplified spontaneous emission and optically pumped lasing, respectively. The proposed system was also electroluminescent and an interesting candidate for future research on polymer injection lasers.
