Photostability of lasing process from water solution of Rhodamine 6G with gold nanoparticles
2012 (English)In: Optics Letters, ISSN 0146-9592, E-ISSN 1539-4794, Vol. 37, no 1, 34-36 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
We report the lasing performance and photobleaching of gain material containing a water solution of Rhodamine 6G dye and gold nanoparticles (NPs). In comparison to a pure dye solution, the investigated material demonstrated both enhancement and quenching of the lasing output, depending on the relative concentration of the gold NPs. Although the presence of NPs with an optimized concentration looks preferable in terms of the lasing output enhancement, such additives deteriorate the operational resource of the gain material; i.e., the photobleaching rate speeds up.
