General description

Coumarin 102(C102) is a laser dye with amino groups in the seventh position that shows the spectrum in the green and blue regions. The quantum efficiency of C102 is also dependent on the orientation of the amino groups.


C102 may be used as a polymeric dye which can be used in the development of gallium nitride(GaN) semiconductor diode based laser.Emulsion mixtures of styrene/perfluoro-n-octanee(PFO) and sodium dodecylsulfate(SDS) can be prepared with C102 which can be used as microcapsules.
