New photosensitive materials based on dye-doped polymeric matrices as active media in solid-state dye lasers allow highly efficient, stable, laser action, with fine tuning of the emitting wavelength from visible to NIR spectral region (575–750 nm) possible. These particular characteristics impelled the building of a prototype SSDL, which was compact, hazardless, versatile, and easy to handle.
