Unidirectional laser emission was observed from φ-conjugated polymer microcavities with spiral geometry, and from microdisks containing line defects. For both type of cavities directionality contrast of the laser emission was found to be ̃ 10, with far-field lateral divergence angle of ̃ 15°. No significant increase in the laser threshold intensity was observed compared with simple microdisk cavities. In addition we also studied the emission spectra of microring polymer lasers fabricated on nylon microfibers upon application of uniaxial stress with strain up to ̃ 12%. Substantial change in the laser emission spectrum was observed when stress was applied; showing enhanced optical sensitivity to stress larger than the changes induced in the emission spectrum caused by the microfiber diameter change. We explain the enhanced sensitivity to stress as due to the induced change in the polymer refractive index dispersion, in particular at the laser emission wavelength (̃ 635 nm). ©2008 IEEE.
