We report the observations of dual wavelength amplified spontaneous emission from the solutions of a conjugated polymer poly [2-methoxy-5-(2-ethylhexyloxy)-1, 4-phenylenevinylene] (MEH-PPV) in Tetrahydrofuran and 1, 2 Dichlorobenzene. We have prepared MEH-PPV using a modified procedure and purified several times in each step, the material offers low molecular weight, low polydispersity index and high thermal stability, which are some of the most important requirements for the fabrication of photo luminescent devices. The variation in the features of amplified spontaneous emission with increasing polymer concentration is presented. For intermediate polymer concentrations, narrow emissions were observed for the 0-0 and 0-1 vibronic peaks which were not reported in solutions to the best of our knowledge. The ASE characteristics sensitively depend on concentration as well as pump power. The gain studies show that MEH-PPV is a potential laser media. By varying the concentration of the solution and pump power we can use either of the two different wavelength bands for lasing applications.
