Abstract

We comment on the recent Letter by Argyros et al. [Opt. Lett. 29, 1882 (2004) ] in which a microstructured polymer fiber doped with the dye Rhodamine 6G was discussed as a possible fiber laser source. We suggest that the lasing action at 632nm was due to stimulated Raman scattering in the poly(methyl methacrylate) host material.
