Abstract

Amplified spontaneous emission (ASE) characteristics of a red dye 4-(Dicyanomethylene)-2-t-butyl-6-(1,1,7,7- etramethyljulolidyl-9-enyl)-4H-pyran (DCJTB) encapsulated in a highly ordered mesoporous SBA-15 were studied. The mesoporous composite silica film loaded with organic dye has been successfully synthesized by a solgel reaction process and a simple postgrafting method at room temperature. The spectrum narrowing phenomena has been observed when the composite film is pumped at λp=532  nm by a Nd:YAG ed laser. There is a substantial reduction in the full width at half-maximum of the emitting light, which is one of the signatures of the presence of ASE. The ASE threshold and net gain, respectively, reached 0.03  mJpulse1 and 34.7  cm1 for the DCJTB encapsulated in mesoporous SBA-15 film. The optimized ASE properties owe much to the effects of the better spatial confinement of the molecules in the ordered mesoporous structure of the host SBA-15.
