The beta-phase of poly(9,9-dioctyl-fluorene) (PFO) shows a very low
amplified spontaneous emission threshold because of its well-resolved
emission spectrum. Within the amorphous PFO, the beta-phase sites act
similar to a dopant as they trap excitons and charges. The figure shows
the blue-light-emitting beta-phase in a PFO solution.
