The lasing properties of organic compounds in a polymethylmethacrylate matrix radiating in the blue-green (paraterphenyle and coumarine derivatives) and red (phodamine and phenalemine derivatives) regions of the spectrum pumped by an XeCl laser are studied. The lasing efficiency and photostability of the solid-state active media are compared with corresponding characteristics of the same liquid active media.
