Abstract
We report on two-photon pumped frequency upconverted emission in doped PMMA fibers. The PMMA fibers were doped with a novel organic chromophore 1,4-bis(4-diphenylamino-styryl)-benzene (referred to as SP35) which is designed specifically to emit in the blue spectral region. Strong upconverted blue emission was observed in the fibers when longitudinally pumped at 800nm with a Titanium Sapphire laser. We measured a large two-photon absorption cross section for SP35 of 7.8 x 10-19cm4/GW using the non-linear transmission method. Our study shows that a well designed organic chromophore in combination with a suitable fiber geometry makes this system appealing for the development of an upconversion blue laser source.
