The film preparation properties and amplified spontaneous emission (ASE) features of a conjugated polymer blended with a zirconium-organosilicon xerogel glassy matrix were studied. Dip and spin coating methods were used to perform polarization and washing steps for the conjugated polymer. Silicon wafer covered with a 7μm thick silica layer was used as a waveguide substrate. The characterization of the absorption and fluorescence spectra of the films signified the evidence of an enhanced gap between the two bands.
