In this article the authors comment on the letter about the general technique to fit the experimental data obtained with the variable stripe length technique. They perceive that the letter contains several errors, misconceptions and confusing statements that prompted them to feel uncertain on the reliability of the proposed technique. They also claimed that the letter ma have presented the data well but it does not provide a clear framework for analysis.

    We investigated the optical gain properties of poly(9,9-dioctylfluorene) thin films as a function of the β-phase content. We demonstrate that the product between the gain cross section and the excited state lifetime of the β-phase is about 3.2 times larger than the glassy-phase one,...

    Uniaxially oriented films of β-phase poly(9,9-dioctylfluorene) (PFO) were realized by a friction-transfer technique followed by thermal annealing and vapor treatments. Absorption and photoluminescence (PL) spectra show the characteristics of β-phase: an additional absorption peak at 433 nm...

    Poly [2-methoxy, 5-(2-ethyl-hexyloxy)-p-phenylene-vinylene] (MEH-PPV) is one of the most widely studied conjugated polymers in the PPV family. MEH-PPV is a very promising polymer for future applications in organic semiconducting electroluminescent electronic and optoelectronic devices. From our...

    We use Raman spectroscopy to investigate the thin-film morphology of conjugated polymers [poly(9,9-di-n-octylfluorene-alt-benzothiadiazole (F8BT)] in terms of the polymer chain conformation at interfaces with quartz, a crosslinked benzocyclobutene derivative, polyvinylphenol, and...

    π-conjugated polymer film waveguides, with sufficient thickness to hold multiple waveguiding modes, showed detuned amplified spontaneous emissions at discrete series of molecular vibrational transitions. The detuning dependent on the film thickness suggests that the selection among...

    Here we consider an interchain interaction model to understand the spectral properties of aggregate of a class of conjugated polymers. The dressed eigenstates are calculated for the equivalent and inequivalent chain dimers and are symmetry classified. We have provided the Wigner function matrix...

    We report unidirectional laser emission from π-conjugated polymer microcavities with broken symmetry geometries such as spiral and microdisk containing a “line defect,” in comparison with plain microdisk cavity having isotropic emission. We found that the laser emission...
