We report positive optical gain under pulsed excitation in oxidized porous silicon planar waveguides impregnated with Nile Blue (LC 6900). Guided photoluminescence measurements show a dramatic line narrowing and a strong superlinear behaviour of the red emission when the pump power is increased. Variable stripe length (VSL) measurements show a clear transition from losses to gain, with a threshold of ~3 mJ/cm2 at 700 nm. A maximum gain coefficient of 8.7 cm–1 is reported.

Abstract

We report positive optical gain under pulsed excitation in oxidized porous silicon planar waveguides impregnated with Nile Blue (LC 6900). Guided photoluminescence measurements show a dramatic line narrowing and a strong superlinear behaviour of the red emission when the pump power is increased. Variable stripe length (VSL) measurements show a clear transition from losses to gain, with a threshold of ~3 mJ/cm2 at 700 nm. A maximum gain coefficient of 8.7 cm–1 is reported.
