Abstract

This Letter reports a convenient method of fabricating a polymer-based microlaser array. Laterally aligned plastic micropillars equipped with an optical resonator were fabricated by using a lithographic technique with an organic-dye-doped photopolymer, which operated as a laser element with a vertical cavity. Under optical pumping, very fine emission spectra showing a Fabry–Perot-type lasing oscillation were observed. Using this technique, integrated laser cavities with desired operation wavebands can be produced easily.
