Abstract

We report the experimental demonstration of spectral encoding of the polarization state of light by use of multiplexed distributed-feedback lasers in a dye-doped organic thin film by exploiting the pump polarization selectivity of the superimposed resonators. Measurement of the Stokes parameters of the pump light without a priori knowledge of the lasing properties of the structure is discussed.
